Lisa Adkins

 

Education: Ph.D. (Sociology)

Position: FiDiPro Distinguished Professor

Lisa Adkins is an Academy of Finland Distinguished Professor (2015-2019) hosted at the University of Tampere and the University of Turku and the BHP Billiton Chair of Sociology at the University of Newcastle, Australia. She is joint Editor-in-Chief of Australian Feminist Studies

She has previously held posts at Goldsmiths, University of London; the University of Manchester; and the Australian National University. She is a graduate of the University of Sussex and the University of Lancaster.

Current research projects: Social Science for the Twenty-First Century.

She is also currently working on an Australian Research Council Discovery Project (2015-2017) on unemployment, under-employment and employment activation in Australia.

Research interests: Lisa Adkins' research interests and contributions to sociology fall into three main areas: social and cultural theory, economic sociology (especially the sociology of post-industrial economies and the new political economy), and  feminist theory and the sociology of gender. Her recent research focuses on the restructuring of labour, money and time in post-Fordist capitalism. Publications from this research have appeared in a number of journals including South Atlantic QuarterlyFeminist Review, Social Epistemology and Australian Feminist Studies. Her next book The Time of Money extends this work. She has also contributed to debates concerning the reconstruction of social science through the volumes What is the Empirical? (2009) and Measure and Value (2012) both co-edited with Celia Lury. Further details of her research programme can be found on 'Labouring Futures'.
