Dr. Dylan Kerrigan

Dr. Dylan Kerrigan has been a lecturer in Anthropology and Political Sociology at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine campus, Trinidad and Tobago since 2007.

His most recent published works include the co-authored book Transnational Popular Psychology and the Global Self Help Industry: The Politics of Contemporary Social Change, research into the relationship between white collar crime and everyday corruption in Trinidad published in Gangs of the Caribbean, and a recent chapter describing Trinidad on the Path to Independence in the collection In the Fires of Hope. He is currently under contract for two new books: Love in Uncertain Times: Neoliberalism and the Globalisation of Therapeutic Narratives of Intimate Life with Routledge Press due in June 2017, and another called Imagining Society: Making the Case for Sociology in the 21st Century with Policy Press due out in 2018.
