Dr. Gemma Ahearne

Welcome to my blog. I am an award winning educator with 10 years lecturing experience and 20 years experience of the sex industry. As a proud Dyslexic I am committed to innovative, creative,  ‘out of the box’ ways of communicating information. I am a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Liverpool and act as a consultant and advisor to a range of organisations and bodies. I specialize in how to break down complex ideas for a variety of audiences and in developing strategies. As a Dyslexic I can see the ‘big picture’ and balance complex and competing ideas.

My work is trauma-informed from both my professional counselling training and my own experiences of MH. I am a committed advocate of the value of lived experience, and have a diverse range of experiences that inform my work.

Demonstrating commitment to my area of scholarship, I regularly review for 10 journals, 2 book publishers and serve on the editorial board for Palgrave Advances in Sex Work Studies.

I am ambitious and keen for more working class women like myself to enter leadership positions and change the culture of the academy.

Prizes and Honours:

  • Shortlisted for Lecturer of the Year, University of Liverpool, 2022
  • British Society of Criminology- Women, Crime and Criminal Justice Network Paper Prize, 2022
  • Tate Exchange Programme, 2022

  • Best in Class Sociology BA (Hons), Liverpool John Moores University, 2012
  • David McEvoy Prize for Sociology, Liverpool John Moores University, 2012

My interests:

  • Sex industry
  • Women in prison
  • Mental health and trauma
  • Food insecurity/food poverty
  • Moralizing discourses and how the ‘other’ is constructed
  • Stigma and deviance
  • The punishment in women’s centres
  • Regulation of women’s bodies
  • Instagram culture and plastic surgery
  • Celebrity
  • Medical sociology, in particular the PIP implant scandal, vaginal mesh scandal, Endometriosis and violence of gendered medicine
  • Relationship between religious right and sex work abolitionism
  • Purity culture
  • Organized Crime Groups- women and children as collateral damage and processes of exploitation
  • Criminal Law
  • Poetry as method
  • Photo voice
  • Walking as method
  • Showgirl Sociology

I love both research and teaching, and aim to use innovative exciting methods in both the research field and my pedagogical approach.

My aim is to break the myth that only certain people are ‘made’ for academia: we all have a story to tell, and we all bear witness to social inequalities.

For me Sociology is a way of telling stories and formulating patterns of social behaviour and theories for change.

I use creative research methods, and prefer participatory action research (PAR) wherever possible.
