Staff and students from across the University are invited to come and join us for a series of conversations, to share and brew ideas, to discuss social, cultural, and political issues in an informal manner across disciplines.

The Sociology Research Seminars are an open ‘exchange space’ for everyone, and the broad organising theme for the 2017/18 academic year is 'Sociology Connects'.

Invited guest speakers represent a range of disciplinary backgrounds, and from across the University and other institutions, we search for connections and open dialogue in the inter- and transdisciplinary ethos.

No booking is required - just pop in! Wine, soft drinks and nibbles are available to help the conversations flow. We look forward to seeing you!

Any questions? Please contact for further information.
