D: Professions and Professionals in a Globalizing World
Tracey L. Adams is a Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. Her grant-funded research focuses on professional work and professional regulation in Canada and internationally. One primary branch of research examines intersectional inequalities at work. A second focuses on the changing nature and organization of professional work and expertise. A third research area traces changes in professional regulation and state-profession relations across time and place. Tracey’s work has been featured in Work, Employment & Society, Social Science & Medicine and the Journal of Professions and Organization, among other journals. Recent books include the award-winning, Regulating Professions (University of Toronto Press, 2018), and the co-edited Gender, Age and Inequality in the Professions (with Marta Choroszewicz, Routledge, 2019).
