Thomas Dunk’s research interests focus on linkages between economy, culture and society, with focus on class, masculinity, and economic transformation. He is the author of It’s a Working Man’s Town: Male Working-Class Culture; the editor of Social Relations in Resource Hinterlands; and Transitions in Marginal Zones in the Age of Globalization: Case Studies from the North and South; and a co-editor of The Training Trap: Ideology, Training and the Labour Market. His most recent projects concern the concept of the circular economy and the forest industry, as well as populism and masculinity in resource hinterland regions as witnessed in controversies about hunting, animal rights, and environmental protection.
