About the Author

Deborah Chambers is a Reader in Sociology of Culture and Communication, Department of English and Media Studies, at Nottingham Trent University. My research interests focus on the ways in which the mobility of individuals, goods and ideas is reshaping the world. Most of the work I have done so far has focused on how people experience and negotiate globalisation, especially as they move as gendered workers in sectors where the 'knowledge' of global knowledge societies is embodied and embedded: sectors such as medicine, education and the IT sector. The mobility and meanings of goods is an area I have explored in my work on Asian women and fashion. In the future I would like to examine how these mobilities are underlain by ideas such as developmentalism in order to explore how they reproduce, alter and challenge gendered subjectivities of migrants. My key concern here is to understand the implications of these ways of thinking for class and race politics and the ways in which postcolonial theory can provide a route into such thinking. Alongside these issues I have also kept up an interest in methodological and epistemological issues.
