Nathan Aaron Kerrigan

Rural Sociologist/Criminologist, Coventry University

Nathan Kerrigan is a Research Assistant at Coventry University. He uses ethnographic approaches to explore a number of issues around identity, community and exclusion. This research tends to examine the ways rural identities are maintained and protected from wider social pressures such as urbanisation, neoliberal expansion and population growth. Specifically, he has focused on the ways in which prejudices, such as racism, against minority ethnic groups are worked up as unintended consequences.
