OVERVIEW

FACILITIES

Research students in Sociology have dedicated office space in the Moser Building where the social science research institutes are located. This is the site of a developing community of postgraduate scholars and research staff. Research training and courses to enhance the employability skills of our research students are provided by the Graduate school and students are encouraged to participate in these. There is a well established sociology seminar series which runs throughout the year and includes both internal and external speakers. Two ESRC-funded seminar series are held by members of the sociology research group.

RESEARCH STAFF AND STUDENTS

Members of the Sociology group present their work at national and international conferences and publish widely. Recent and forthcoming publications include work on social theory and space, utopia and dystopia, friendship, confession, consumption, childhood, sexualities and research methods.

Staffs are currently involved in the research supervision of research students working in a diverse range of areas including ‘third culture’ children, intergenerational policy and services, and issues around migration and globalisation.
