A visual exploration of the role of different kinds of shame in the relationship between marginalisation and violence.
Co-convenor of the British Sociological Association "Sociology of Emotions" study group, 2023
Anna is interested in how social structures create division and marginalise people, and is keen to explore human responses to this process. She is particularly interested in how people manage to connect productively across difference, the emotional and relational states required to do this, and how social structures can create the necessary conditions for meaningful connection.
In other work, Anna is involved in looking at how trauma exposure and normalised violence influence violent and non-violent responses, and the relevance of shame in these processes.
