Imogen Tyler is a social theorist and sociologist of inequalities and borders (of multiple kinds). Her research is concerned with social inequalities, power, injustice and resistance. Her 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 state formations), the intersections of different histories and forms of inequality (for example, gender, citizenship status, disability). Her work is concerned with how 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.
