The Ashley Frawley Interview

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE

This week I interviewed Dr Ashley Frawley. Ashley has appeared across social media of late defining some of the terms that the Far Left has thrown at opponents. Here she explains how “Far Right” has almost lost all meaning:

So who is Dr Frawley?

Originally from Canada and a member of Nipissing First Nation, Ashley Frawley is senior lecturer in sociology and social policy at Swansea University in Wales.

Ashley lectures in the sociology of health, mental health and illness, social problems, social movements, and in the economics of social policy. Her research explores the rising importance attributed emotions and behaviour in an era of ‘no alternative’ to capitalism. She is particularly interested in ‘vulnerable’ constructions of human subjects in the rhetoric of new social problems. She is the author of Semiotics of Happiness: rhetorical beginnings of a public problem published by Bloomsbury Academic in 2015 and the forthcoming Significant Emotions (2020) which explores the seemingly never ending rise and fall of new emotional panaceas for social problems.
