The Everyday Austerity Project explores the impact of austerity on everyday family life. The research involved in-depth ethnographic research with families and communities in Greater Manchester, UK with a focus on:

  • family, friendship and intimate relationships
  • gender relations, class and inter-generationality
  • everyday consumption practices and decision-making
  • methods for researching ‘the everyday’ and austere experiences

The study was carried out by Dr Sarah Marie Hall funded by a Hallsworth Research Fellowship from the University of Manchester (2012-2015).
