Course summary

Our research expertise centres around three themes: Identities, the Sociology of Health and Life Sciences and Social Transformations. Our research tradition covers sociology, social policy and social anthropology. We have strengths in the fields of family studies, health studies, political economy, sexuality, citizenship, and youth and student lives.

Our MPhil and PhD projects cover a wide spectrum of contemporary sociology including:

bodies, identities and experiences
culture and material life
'development' and the global south
emotions and intimacy
environment and society
imagining pasts and futures
sexualities and gender
sociology of ethics
sociologies of health and life sciences
sociology of law
visual and aesthetic cultures

Each of these themes represents the expertise of a member of staff actively engaged in sociological research.

Most of our research students are based in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, with some based in the Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences (PEALS) Research Centre.
