Sociological Studies Seminar Series 23-23

Sociological Studies has launched a new departmental seminars series (23-24), which aims to showcase cutting edge sociological and interdisciplinary research, and foster connectivity and/or collaboration. With sixteen seminars across the academic year, we will cover a range of topics related to our four research themes: Everyday Life and Critical Diversities; Social Inequalities and Social Ordering; Science, Technology and Medicine in Society; and Wellbeing and Health Across the Lifecourse. In 23-24, the series is largely intended as a space for SCS colleagues to come together to discuss works in progress. People external to the department may attend selected seminars online, or in-person at the invitation of the speaker.
