Chloe is a Research Associate at the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) at the University of Manchester as part of a research team working on The Changing Shape of Cultural Activism, an ESRC-funded project examining why and how activists have contested statues in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Chloe's own research looks at contemporary configurations of race and class, and the various processes by which these are reproduced, resisted and contested in political, media, public, policy and legal spheres. Chloe has a PhD and MRes in Sociology, and a BA in Anthropology and Sociology, from Goldsmiths, University of London, and an MA in Anthropology from the University of Sussex. Her PhD critically examined the criminal justice reaction to the 2011 'riots', focusing on the forms of cultural amnesia, strategic ignorance and denial that normalised and justified the punitive and discriminatory reaction to the unrest, and continue to shape penal policy and practice.
Chloe has previously worked in policy roles and as an Associate Lecturer at Goldsmiths, teaching Sociology modules on historical sociology, philosophical and methodological issues in social science, and critical approaches to crime and criminal justice; and in the Design department, teaching creative and participatory social research methods.
