About Ava Horowitz

My undergraduate degree was in Sociology and Psychology at the University of Bath. My PhD was gained at Loughborough University under the supervision of Professor Michael Billig and where I was a member of the Loughborough Discourse and Rhetoric Group for five years. I have been lecturing at the University of Lincoln since 1997.

Department Responsibilities

My teaching is mostly in the area of Social Psychology, which I teach in Year 1 & 2. I also teach Individual Psychology in Year 1. In Year 3 I run an elective based on my area of particular research expertise, called Discourse (Module coordinator). I am also a member of the Module Team for Year 2 Research Skills and offer some coverage of qualitative methods to various MSc programmes. In addition, I supervise Year 3 dissertation students, and Masters and PhD students.
