Caitlin Nunn (she/her) is a Research Fellow in the Manchester Centre for Youth Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, and an Honorary Research Fellow in Sociology at La Trobe University, Australia.
Caitlin’s research is located at the intersection of Refugee Studies and Youth Studies. It focuses on the lived experiences of refugee-background young people in the United Kingdom and Australia, particularly with respect to (non)belonging. She has published widely on the topic, including in relation to national belonging, multiculturalism, citizenship, representation, sport, and health.
Caitlin’s methodological expertise is in participatory and arts-based approaches that centre young people’s ideas and experiences and foster dialogue and understanding beyond academia. This includes working with refugee-background young people, artists, and organisations to co-produce films, exhibitions, zines, and policy and practice resources.
