Dr Ashli Mullen
- Neil Davidson Postdoctoral Writing Fellowship (School of Social & Political Sciences)
Ashli Mullen is a sociologist who works on questions of value and racialised capitalism. Her research explores how the links between welfare chauvinism, economic exploitation, and deportability structure the conditions that racialised migrant workers labour under. She is the author of ‘‘Race’, Place and Territorial Stigmatisation: The Construction of Roma Migrants in and through Govanhill, Scotland’ in New Scots: Scotland's immigrant communities since 1945 and ‘From informal to formal economic exploitation: tricks of capital and the production and circulation of illusory value’, forthcoming in Critical Sociology.
She is currently working on a monograph based on her doctoral research, Racialised Capitalism at the Margins: an ethnography with Roma migrant workers, which is the project that she will undertake during her time as a Neil Davidson Postdoctoral Writing Fellow. She is also working on a second book, co-authored with Satnam Virdee, which is provisionally titled Marxism and Racialised Capitalism (to be published by Polity Press in 2024). Ashli also works as Creative Director of Romano Lav, an anti-racist Roma migrant organisation based in Govanhill, where she continues to work with the communities that her research is indebted to.
