PhD Research

My current research question navigates around how ideas of masculinity inform perceptions of cultural preservation, race, gender, hierarchy, nationhood, and immigration among men in London who identify with the far-right. I got involved with such groups while conducting ethnography for my master’s dissertation: ‘We want our country back: attitudes towards immigration in London pubs.’ The project portrayed the thoughts and ideas of everyday regulars at pubs the summer after the Brexit vote.
