Our research activity is guided by a focus on key themes: Global Insecurities; Ethnicity and Citizenship; Gender; Social, Cultural and Political Theory; Migration; Digital Sociology; European Politics and Society; Party Politics; Culture and Consumption; and Secularism, Post-secularism and Religion.
All researchers across the school cluster around one or more of the themes. This enables collective identification over themes within the School and aims to generate further collaboration and interdisciplinarity in our research activities. In addition, the clusters provide a basis for internal and external recognition of the main questions and topics that our research addresses. Some research themes host research infrastructures, including centres, networks, seminar series, workshops and reading groups.
