Yasmin Gunaratnam

Reader in Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London

I am an academic and writer, interested in illness, death, migration, the body and feminism. I teach in the Sociology Department at Goldsmiths College on research methods, culture, representation and difference and feminist theory. I am part of the editorial collectives of Feminist Review and Media Diversified. I have co-edited two recent collections on the work of John Berger: A Jar of Wild Flowers (Zed) and A Long White Thread of Words (Smokestack).
