Professor Katharine Tyler
Professor of Social Anthropology
My research falls within the interdisciplinary area of critical race studies, with a focus on whiteness, class and postcolonialism. My work is founded upon ethnographic fieldwork across differing places in Britain. I am Principal Investigator of two ESRC funded projects that bring together ethnographers, political scientists, and an artist to explore questions of identity, inequality, and the role of the media in the context of Brexit and the Covid pandemic. I am a team member of Professor Susan Banducci’s ERC project that mobilises survey, media and ethnographic data and approaches to explore women candidates’ experiences of sexism on the campaign trail.
