Dr Pam Lowe

Senior Lecturer in Sociology

Pam Lowe joined Aston in September 2005. Most of her teaching and research is centred around women’s reproductive health, with a particular interest in pregnancy, contraception and parenting. Recently she has worked on a number of projects including examining the construction of foetal alcohol syndrome in British newspapers and the deployment of neuroscience in parenting policy. Currently she is undertaking a project with partners at Coventry University examining young people’s understanding of sexual consent.
