Research Themes

Gender, Equality and Diversity

Examines structural and institutional inequalities in work and organisations, including those based on gender, ethnicity, sexuality, age, ability, class, and location, and investigates how they are created, reinforced and resisted.  Our emphasis on diversity encourages new understandings of existing challenges to further positive social change and business innovation. Our research builds on the concept of a fair society that protects and promotes equal freedom and substantive equality for all.

Theme Leader

A Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow in the School of Management, Tyler’s work examines feminist theory, sexuality and violence against women, with the aims of challenging and changing social constructions and preconceptions.

Her recent book Freedom Fallacy: The limits of liberal feminism (Connor Court, 2015) examines the rise of pop feminism, taking on topics ranging from pornography and forced marriage to sexual violence and sex trafficking, to argue that this kind of feminism does little to challenge the status quo.
