within Warwick Medical School, where he was Senior Tutor for Year One students on the

Alan’s research tends to focus on men, masculinity and health. For example, his research
has examined the on-going debates between neo-materialist and psychosocial explanations
for current patterns of health from a masculine/gendered perspective. This research also
sought to examine the intersections of social class and masculinity for understanding
current patterns of working class male health and working class men’s use of healthcare
