Dr Panayiota Alevizou, Lecturer in Marketing at Sheffield University Management School, and her colleagues Nina Michaelidou, Ruby Appiah-Campbell and Athanasia Daskalopoulou, have a new publication forthcoming in the leading journal, Sociology. The paper is titled Self-Tracking among Young People: Lived Experiences, Tensions and Bodily Outcomes.

The paper explores the role of self-tracking in young people's relationship with their body and their lived, 'fleshy' experiences in the social world. It reports findings from original research funded by BA Leverhulme that show self-tracking enables young people to engage in different types of ‘body work’, to care for and transform a body that is in constant flux by treating it as either a ‘private’ or ‘shared’ project.

The paper is available to read online.
