Ben Carrington, Sociologist
Professor Ben Carrington has written widely on a range of topics including the sociology of race, gender and culture, post/colonial theory, Marxism and culture, sports studies, media studies, youth culture and music. More specifically, he is interested in how ideologies of race shape – and are themselves shaped by – cultural forms, practices and identities and how popular culture is often a key site of both cultural resistance and domination. He has published four books and is currently working on a new ethnographic project examining the contemporary state of black cultural politics within the Caribbean diaspora. In addition to his books, Ben Carrington has also published numerous essays and articles.
