My main areas of research and publication are concerned with the geopolitics, governance, and social and cultural impacts of global migration streams. My work examines the experiences of different migrant groups with a main focus on asylum seeker and refugee communities. I teach urban studies, community and participatory development as well as social justice courses at Saint Peter’s College in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Imogen is a Senior Lecturer and Leverhulme Fellow in the Sociology Department at Lancaster University. `Social Abjection` is a pivotal concept within my current research, and brings together my work on asylum, immigration, borders, social class, race, ethnicity, disability, social exclusion, poverty and my interest in the theory/activism/aesthetics interface. As well as working on this project, I have written writing a book called ‘Revolting Subjects’ (Zed 2012).
