Research interests

Elisabeth’s primary research focusses on the economic sociology of consumption, as well as the ethics and political economy of experiential learning modalities, with a specific focus on interdisciplinary pedagogy. Across her research projects, she has a particular interest in qualitative research methodologies, including narrative enquiry and (collaborative) auto-ethnography. Recently, she undertook a phenomenological study on the lived experience of ethical consumers in Australia as well as a collaborative auto-ethnography on ‘teacher transformation’ in experiential learning classrooms. Her work on consumer experiences of ethical markets builds on her monograph, ‘Is Fairtrade Fair?’ (Palgrave Macmillan: 2013).
