Dr. Vincent Lyon-Callo is a professor in the Department of Sociology, with a joint appointment in the Institute for Intercultural and Anthropological Studies at Western Michigan University. He works primarily on issues of poverty and class processes within the United States.
Lyon-Callo's current research analyzes how to make sense of practices and policies whereby community members respond to social and economic restructurings in southwest Michigan.
He is working on a book based upon that research to be co-authored with Boone Shear. His first book, Inequality, Poverty and Neoliberal Governance, explores when homelessness becomes individualized and possible resistance against systemic inequities becomes muted and marginalized.
He is a member of the editorial board of the journal Rethinking Marxism and served as co-organizer for the journal's 2006 international conference.
