Vron Ware Website

Vron Ware has written widely about the politics of race, gender and national identity and has taught in Humanities and Sociology in the UK and US. Her books include Beyond the Pale: White Women, Racism and History (Verso, 1992), Out of Whiteness: Color, Politics and Culture (University of Chicago Press, 2002, with Les Back) and Who Cares About Britishness? A Global View of the National Identity Debate (Arcadia, 2007). From her latest Research Fellowship at the Centre for Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC), and the Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (CCIG) at the Open University, sprang her work Military Migrant (2012, 2014), an ethnographic study of the British Army with a focus on the employment of non-UK nationals. From January 2015 she is working on a new project with partners at Stockholm University entitled The Politics of Military Loss in Europe. The aim of this comparative project is to examine how deaths of European soldiers in Afghanistan are given societal meanings and justifications and how these losses have been politically framed and handled.
