James (Jim) Caron is a Graduate University Teacher, offering support to students as a Pastoral Helper as well as being involved in the Academic and Vocational Skills, and Sport Coaching modules. James graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a first-class honours degree in Sports Studies in 2019 before completing a master's degree in Sports Management, Politics and International Development at Loughborough University in 2020.

James Caron’s main research interest is broadly concerned with the online media representation of female athletes. In his undergraduate and master's studies, he focused on specific athletes such as Serena Williams, Alex Morgan, and Megan Rapinoe, and explored key theoretical concepts such as performative identities, traditional gender roles in sport, homophobia in a sexist and heterosexist society, the sexualisation of female athletes, and sports celebrities. 

To supplement his academic activities, James Caron has an extensive bank of practical sports coaching and officiating (8+ years') experience, specifically in hockey and football.
