  • GWS 403 Feminist Media & Cultural Theory (running as feminist activism summer school 2015)

Research Interests

In 2014 Iwas awarded a prestigiousPhilip Leverhulme Prize and from 1/9/15these prize fundswill support theresearch on mynewproject on stigma and inequality in postwelfare states provisionally entitled The Stigma Doctrine.

All my research is concerned with social inequalities, power, injustice and resistance. My work examines why inequalities exist, why inequalities are currently growing (for example, patterns of neoliberalism, marketization, privatisation and the erosion of democracy in the transition to postwelfare systems), the intersections of different histories and forms of inequality (for example, gender, citizenship status, disability). My work is concerned withhow inequalities are measured and classified, the ways in which inequalities are reproduced & resisted and the kinds of subjectivities and identities which are constituted through unequal social relations. My research criss-crosses the arts and social sciences. It is intersectional work which employs mixed methods and draws together long-standing research interests in migration, internal and external borders, sexual politics, social class, race & ethnicity, disability and poverty, and an abiding interest in culture, representation, processes of mediation and political aesthetics.

In 2010 I was awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship and the major outcome of this fellowshipwas the monograph Revolting Subjects: Social Abjection and Resistance in Neoliberal Britain (London: Zed, 2013) which was nominated for the Bread and Roses Prize for Radical Publishing

I have also published widely in the area of borders, citizenship, migrancyand in 2009 I set up a cross departmental Migrancy Research Group at Lancaster University. I have recently edited,with Katarzyna Marciniak (Ohio University) a special issue ofCitizenship Studieson `Immigrant Protest`(2013) andImmigrant Protest: Politics, Aesthetics, and Everyday Dissent(SUNY) I have recently completed an ESRC funded project called 'Making Asylum Seekers Legible and Visible: An Analysis of the Dilemmas and Mitigating Strategies of Asylum Advocacy in the UK and US '. During 2012-2015 I am participating an ESRC Seminar Series ?Exploring Everyday Practice and Resistance in Immigration Detention?. The finalconference in this series 'The Business of Immigration Detention: Activisms, Resistances, CriticalInterventions' will take place in Lancaster in Jan 2015.

External Roles

I am on the advisory board of the ESRC project Celebrity Youth (The role of celebrity in young people's classed and gendered aspirations').
