Biography

Pauline Johnson's current research explores the difficulties that contemporary Sociology encounters in setting up an effective critique of neoliberal ideologies. The project is framed by an engagement with various accounts of the restricted critical powers of Sociology as a Social Science. It will investigate the particular challenges that contemporary Sociology faces in mounting an effective critique of a range of cultural phenomena including: therapy culture, populism and the 'seduction' of feminism by neoliberalism. Pauline's major research projects have spanned topics in critical theory, Habermas and the crisis of the public sphere and feminism and the defence of critical humanism.
