Stigma: The machinery of inequality – An interview with Prof Imogen Tyler

Imogen Tyler is Professor of Sociology at Lancaster University. Her book Stigma: The Machinery of Inequality argues that stigma is deployed by capitalists in order to justify and perpetuate multiple inequalities in today's society. Drawing on her activist work with Morecambe Bay Poverty Truth Commission, Stigma is also an activist reflection on the decade of austerity in the United Kingdom and the scars left by that policy on communities. We discuss the book and its ideas in this video interview.
