I have been Professor of Sociology at the Universities of Plymouth, Leicester, and Essex and have also taught at Strathclyde University. I have held Honorary Professorships at Bergen University, Exeter University, and Copenhagen University, and am currently also a Visiting Professor at Essex University.

I am a Fellow of the British Academy, a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

I was awarded a CBE in 2013 for Services to Social Science, the BSA Distinguished Service for Sociology award in 2014, and an Honorary Doctorate of the University of Essex in 2016.
