Katherine Tonkiss

Senior Lecturer in Sociology

Katherine joined Aston in 2015, having previously worked as a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham where she also completed her PhD. Her research explores migration rights, post-nationalism, citizenship and belonging. Her first book, published in 2013, explored the negotiation of identity and belonging in contexts of high EU immigration. Since then she has published two edited volumes on noncitizenship and statelessness, and her research has also appeared in journals including Citizenship Studies, the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, and Ethnic and Racial Studies. Katherine’s current research agenda incorporates migration rights activism, statelessness, and post-national forms of identity and belonging in the UK.
