Professor Tracey Warren is honoured by the Academy of Social Sciences


Professor of Sociology, Tracey Warren, of Nottingham University Business School has been conferred a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences (FAcSS).

Professor Warren is one of 47 leading social scientists to be recognised in the Academy's newly elected Spring 2022 Fellows. She is an internationally respected sociologist, well-known for her original research into inequalities in working lives.

Research that improves working lives

Her pioneering approach prioritises groups too often neglected in mainstream research agendas, with the ultimate aim to help improve working lives. Tracey's areas of expertise include work-time patterns, practices and policies; work-life balance; atypical working; and the division of domestic labour.

Recently, she has led funded projects to explore the unequal impact of Covid-19 on working lives in the UK.

Professor Warren said:

I am honoured to receive the Award of Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in recognition of my contribution to social science. I am excited to work with the Academy and the other fellows to help support the social sciences and to better understand and address the challenges faced by workers today.
