Social issues such as homelessness and poverty; media; health inequalities; community life and bloke culture.
Darrin’s research explores how people of lower socio-economic status (SES) use shared symbolic resources to construct their views on concerns such as social reform, homelessness, health professionals, men’s health, aging, lifestyle, unemployment, and men’s family violence.
His research draws on insights from social/societal/community psychology, media and communications, and medical sociology to analysis of the ways such social concerns are framed by mass media, the views voiced by individuals, and the ways in which these views are communally constructed communally.
Darrin has co-authored a number of peer refereed articles with national and international colleagues. Funding for these projects has come from the Health Research Council of New Zealand, Marsden, Santory and Toyota Centres for Economics and Related Disciplines, the British Academy, Canadian Health Research Council, The London School of Economics and Political Sciences, the University of Waikato, and Massey University.
