About this Event

Professor Imogen Tyler will deliver a talk entitled 'Welfare Stigma Machines' to open the 'Critical Perspectives on Stigma, Shame and the Irish Welfare Imaginary' conference.

Professor Imogen Tyler is a social theorist and sociologist and is currently Head of Department of Sociology at Lancaster University. Her teaching and research is concerned with social inequalities (of multiple kinds), power, injustice and resistance.

In 2019, Professor Tyler was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Social Science, an award granted by the Academy of Social Sciences to leading academics, policy-makers, and practitioners of the social sciences.

A Philip Leverhulme Prize (2015-2019) is also supporting her current research project on stigma and power. The major outcomes of this project are: a Sociological Review monograph 'The Sociology of Stigma' (2018); a single-authored book 'Stigma Machines' (Zed, 2019); a series of peer-reviewed journal articles; and a collaboration with the graphic artist Charlotte Bailey on a zine of my essay 'From Stigma Power to Black Power'.

In 2017, along with Dr Tracey Jensen, Professor Tyler developed and taught a new final year undergraduate course, Welfare States: Histories and Futures, which was awarded a faculty prize for student experience in 2018.

In 2014 she was awarded a Lancaster University Staff prize for 'Outstanding Research in the area of Social Inequalities'.
