Faculty of Social Sciences
The Faculty of Social Sciences is engaged in world-class research which informs both academic and public debate about the key issues facing societies today:
We are committed to work that is both interdisciplinary and critical. We have a strong track record of methodological elaboration and innovation, including in discourse analysis, Q-methodology and visual methodologies, and an interest in the social and political lives of methods.
We strive to be engaged with important social issues, to be relevant to people's lives and to promote values of equality and social justice.
We collaborate with each other through our Research Centres, and we also nurture strong relations with non-academic partners.
And finally, you can also get to know some of us through our blogs: for example, Clive Barnett and Nick Mahony blog on publics and politics, Simon Carter's blog discusses all things health-related, Joe Smith discusses the cultural politics of environmental change and Gillian Rose blogs on visual culture and visual methods.
