Research interests

My research interests reside in the broad area of state-economy-society relations and theorising these from different sociological traditions. Substantive areas of research include soicology of cultural production, cultural work and identity, and governance. Theoretical frames draw on Polanyi, actor-network theory, and Bourdieu. Methods include qualitative data collection and analysis, and social network analysis.
