Áine Humble

 

Dr. Áine Humble's main research interests focus on (a) how gender is constructed ("doing gender") in families and relationships, and how gender affects the division of unpaid labour and the intersection of unpaid labour with paid labour, and (b) the use of qualitative data analysis software. She has conducted both qualitative and quantitative research in this area. She is the Director of the Atlantic Research Centre for Family-Work Issues at the Mount, a research centre funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation. Her secondary research interests involve qualitative research methods, feminist education, sexuality education, and understudied intimate relationships such as same-sex couples/families.
