I joined Manchester Sociology in 2003, having taught in sociology and cultural studies departments in London and studied at the universities of Sheffield, York, and Goldsmiths, from where I gained my PhD. My research is located in political sociology and the sociology of culture and media, where I focus on the sociology of publishing (post-digital, small press, experimental, and communist publishing); architecture and social housing (Brutalism, Robin Hood Gardens, Alison and Peter Smithson); and social and political theory (minor politics, Deleuze and Guattari, Marx and Marxism, the critique of work). I teach in the fields of work and economy, the sociology of conflict, and social theory. I am a member of the editorial board of the culture and politcs journal New Formations.
