Kelly is Associate Professor of Sociology at Loyola University Chicago. Her research and teaching examine the relationship between science and technology, and moral and political systems, in the US and around the globe. She is especially interested in how and why science and moral and political systems change, and the relationships between science, inequality, and justice. Some of this research has appeared in Disrupting Science (Princeton University Press, 2008), winner of the Robert K. Merton Book Prize and of Honorable Mention for the Charles Tilly Book Prize, in the co-authored article “Science and Neoliberal Globalization,” winner of the Star-Nelkin Best Paper Award, and in the co-edited volume The New Political Sociology of Science (Wisconsin, 2006). Her current research examines the role of science and neoliberalism in creating the anti-hunger movement and global food rioting and their oppositional counterparts, racialized and gendered anti-obesity movements and everyday gluttony.
