My name is Mariann Hardey. It is my business to know what other people don’t know about stuff.

It is Elementary. Hello dear reader. If you have a bit of Sherlock abut you and are interested in the minutiae of investigations here is what I do…
On the right, you will notice rather nifty Research Elements to reflect the fundamentals of my broader intellectual horizons and forces of The Social in my intellectual inquiry. As these continue to develop, along with the collaboration and insight of others at the University of Durham and beyond, it is intended the outputs will help to extend knowledge and contribute to the rather fluty flight of social media.
As a sister academic, you’ll be concerned about Impact. My research has features regularly as broadcast on the BBC, has been discussed in The Times Higher, mocked in the Poppletonian, announced in the London Review of Books and enjoyed by a bookish audience at the Edinburgh Book Festival, and more. All other more traditional methods of research dissemination such as conferences, those journals and books can be found on my official staff pages at the University of Durham.
