Research Clusters provide focal points for collaboration in different areas of sociological, social, and criminological research. Through them our academic researchers can share ideas, develop projects, gain peer support, and access broader networks.
Explore the diverse range of research projects taking place across the Department of Sociology, Social Policy, and Criminology, and learn about their real-life impact.
We see the provision of training for researchers as a key part of sustaining a vibrant research culture. Since 2011, the advanced training network has promoted and facilitated methodological excellence, innovation and inter-disciplinary dialogue.
Our partnerships are focussed on developing new opportunities for international research and impact, as well as education.
Eleanor Rathbone Public Lecture Series
Our Eleanor Rathbone Social Justice Public Lectures are a long-standing annual public lecture series hosted by the Department.
Our academics discuss in more detail a topic that relates to an area of their research expertise. These 'Research Writing' long reads often also respond to world events.
