The Sociology subject area at the University of Glasgow comprises of three subjects: Anthropology, Criminology and Sociology. Our aim is to promote dialogue about our research through strengthening links with other scholars (of all sorts) and to reach a wider and more diverse audience by engaging with friends, colleagues and communities outside of the University. We want this to be a space for sharing ideas, inspiring conversation and promoting debate on our work and on the social issues of the day.

We aim to provide a diverse range of open access content including articles, draft papers, details of upcoming events, book reviews, interviews, reports, audio and video clips – the more creative the better.

The Sociology subject area hosts a number of research clusters focusing on crime and justice; disability; ethnicity, race and nationalism; gambling; gender and sexualities; media; and health and wellbeing, and thus brings together experts across different fields while facilitating critical dialogues between both academic and non-academic actors from the UK and beyond.
