About

The research expertise centres around three themes: Identities, the Sociology of Health and Life Sciences and Social Transformations, at Newcastle University. Our research tradition covers sociology, social policy and social anthropology. We have strengths in the fields of family studies, health studies, political economy, sexuality, citizenship, and youth and student lives.

Overview

Most of of the research students from Newcastle University, are based in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, with some based in the Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences (PEALS) Research Centre.

Four research clusters act as the intellectual focus for the development and exchange of ideas. You will join one or more of these Sociology research groups:

  • Identities, embodiments and selves
  • Imagining pasts and futures
  • Power, inequalities and citizenship
