Course summary

The MPhil in Visual Sociology offers students the opportunity to combine written sociological argument with film, sound, or photographic representation. It will allow new researchers to re-think both the conduct of social research and the forms that social research writing takes in the 21st century. The PhD will allow students to re-think the gathering, analysis and presentation of research data and consider the future of sociological representation. Assessment will be via a thesis, visual/aural component (a video or sound feature, or a photographic project), and viva voce. The Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths is active, contemporary and inventive. We are interested in everything from the ‘global’ issues of poverty and injustice to the ‘micro’ issues of cultural identity and the presentation of self in a digital world. Goldsmiths Sociology has a long track record of funded research, with research funded by UK research councils, British Academy, European Union, and charities including Leverhulme, Wellcome and Joseph Rowntree. We are also in research collaboration with industry, local and national government and public bodies.
