Dr Tracey Jensen

Senior Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies

Research Overview

My research and teaching draws across the disciplines of sociology, social policy, cultural studies, gender and women's studies and critical media studies. My research interests are around cultural politics, representation, social and media inequalities and the cultural and emotional dimensions of austerity. I am involved in research on parenting culture, media and policy - on welfare imaginaries and the history and future of welfare state experiments and representations - and on the resurgence of eugenics and reproductive politics in a political moment characterised by authoritarianism.
