Research in the Department of Sociology focuses on the following four areas:
Exchanges, markets, consumption, cultural economy and cultural capital
Multicultural living, citizenship, difference and social divisions (gender, class, age, ethnicity, sexuality)
Materiality, objects, city infrastructures, health
Transformations in media, communications and technologies.
The department has extensive work on methodology, using rigorous quantitative and qualitative methods to assess the dynamics of social lives and sociocultural change in the UK, in other countries and globally. We engage with the cutting-edge focus on ‘the Social Life of Methods’, which understands that social science makes the world as it investigates it, examining ways in which sociology can change social worlds.
