Dr Stuart Scrase
I lecture in both sociology and anthropology. My doctoral research utilised ethnographic fieldwork in north London to explore the 2011 English riots, specifically examining the issue of violence against police. Highlighting the role of shame and anger, the project sought to situate individual acts of violence in 2011 within an historical framework of police-black relations, education, socio-economic context, and structured possibilities for self-esteem. My research interests are affect and emotions, cognition, riots, policing, marginality, and race.
