UCL Sociology Network is a creative space for sociological doctoral students and staff across UCL
Sociology has a significant presence and reach across UCL through teaching, research and PhD supervision. There are sociologists in every UCL Faculty with expertise in a wide range of thematic and geographic specialisms. UCL has a substantial methodological community which uses sociological thinking to inform the use and development of approaches to research using qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods. UCL has strong links with the British Sociological Association, and the Academy of Social Sciences.
UCL Sociology Network is a creative space for sociological doctoral students and staff across UCL. Taking a broad and inclusive definition of sociology, the network seeks to connect sociologists to share and generate synergies across the field, to celebrate the work of UCL sociologists, and to ensure the discipline’s visibility within and beyond UCL to researchers, funders, prospective doctoral students and the public. The Network is run by and for its members, and as such will evolve to suit their needs:
