Research Interests
Sarah Pedersen's research focuses on women's engagement with the media, including historical and contemporary source material. Her book 'The Scottish Suffragettes and the Press' was published in 2017 by Palgrave Macmillan. The same year she was awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to produce an edition of the correspondence of Aberdeen suffragette and journalist Caroline Phillips. This work has led to a plaque to Caroline Phillips being unveiled on Union Street in Aberdeen. She has also collaborated with artist-activist Carrie Reichardt in her public work celebrating Aberdeen women for the NuArt Festival. Her work on the Scottish suffrage campaign has been praised in a motion to the Scottish Parliament and was highly commended by the judges of the British Records Association's annual Harley Prize. She was the Director of the Rise Up Quines! festival in Aberdeen in 2018.
Pedersen also researches women's use of social media, including blogs, Twitter and online forums and is currently working on a book entitled 'The Politicization of Mumsnet', to be published later this year.
Teaching and Learning Module lead for fourth-year modules "Women and the Media" and "Celebrity Culture".
