In our department, academics, postgraduate researchers, and students collectively develop and apply their ‘sociological imagination’ to a range of social phenomena and some of the most intractable social problems. These include social inequality and its implications for social mobility, education and health; and the impacts of violence and abuse, help-seeking and state responses.
