Blaire joined the School of Education in 2012, and is working as a Research Associate within the Jubilee Centre for Character and Values. She is currently working on a project funded by the John Templeton Foundation entitled ‘An Attitude for Gratitude’. This project will be examining how the principle of gratitude and service is understood in British society. In particular, it will be exploring the ways in which gratitude is conceptualised and what kinds of people are grateful. Importantly, this research should highlight the ways in which we might promote the principle of gratitude within society and increase people’s awareness of the value of gratitude and service.
