Associate Professor, Geography
Working within labor geography, economic geography and development geography, Siobhan McGrath takes a political economy approach to labor. Her scholarship to date has focused on 1) ‘unregulated work’ including wage theft and other violations; 2) how to understand freedoms and unfreedoms within labor relations; 3) how labor unfreedoms are represented and acted upon through categories such as ‘modern slavery’; and 4) how conditions of work are determined through the dynamics of Global Production Networks (GPNs). She has taught at the Manchester University, Lancaster University and Durham University in the UK and has also worked within, and alongside, the labor movement. She holds a BA from the School for International Training, an MA in Economics from the New School for Social Research, and a PhD in International Development from the University of Manchester.
