Projects per year
Dr Anthony Lloyd is Associate Professor in Criminology and Sociology. He studied Criminology here at Teesside (BSc and MSc) before completing an MA in Social Research Methods at the University of York. His PhD (also at the University of York) involved a covert ethnographic study in a call centre. After completing his PhD, Anthony worked for the NHS before returning to Teesside University in 2013.
Anthony is interested in the social harm, critical criminology and the sociology of work. His most recent research has focused on the realities of the service economy. He is particularly interested in blending analysis of the workplace with emerging theoretical frameworks around 'harm' to understand experiences of low-paid, insecure and flexible forms of labour. His most recent book, The Harms of Work, was published by Bristol University Press in 2018. Finally, Anthony is working on a number of project proposals that broadly relate to his main interests of workplace sociology and/or social harm.
