Student Profile(s)

Carin Tunaker

Carin completed a BA in Social Anthropology at Kent and continued on to the MA programme, where she researched matrifocality, music and religion in Cuba, including a period of fieldwork in Havana. Carin currently works as a manager for the Canterbury Young Persons Accommodation Services, Porchlight.

Being deeply concerned by the need to have culturally and socially sensitive policies on youth homelessness, she proposed to conduct research on the latter and Porchlight awarded her with research funds to read a doctorate on youth homelessness in Kent, with a special focus on the experiences of LGBTQ people. Carin’s research has been visible in media, both locally and nationally, and has been recognised by leading charities as an important contribution to practice and research regarding homeless youth.

‘The skills I gained during my BA and MA in Social Anthropology were crucial, as they opened up a new way of looking at structural inequality locally and allowed me to discern this otherwise hidden problem through participant observation and ‘being there’. I find it very important to have the opportunity to apply my knowledge first-hand and address issues of social injustice in the local community, where I can make a difference to people’s lives.’
