Professor Sally Hines

Sally Hines was Professor of Sociology in the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Leeds, and is now Chair of Sociology at the University of Sheffield. Her work is in the areas of gender, sexuality, intimacy, and the body; addressing transformations in these identity practices and everyday experiences. The focus on the intersections – and disconnections – of gender, sexuality, and embodiment are brought together in her body of work on transgender. Sally’s publications have also addressed feminist theory, sexuality studies, intersectionality, citizenship and recognition. Her latest book Gender Diversity, Recognition and Citizenship: Towards a Politics of Difference (2013) is published by Palgrave. Sally is co-editor of the Routledge Book Series ‘Advances in Critical Diversities’.
