Our research and teaching are committed to making sociology matter within and outside the university. We do this through tackling issues of inequality, marginalisation and social, economic and political justice at both local and global scales.
We invent and experiment with new research methods and critical social and cultural theory. We work in pluri-disciplinary ways that cut across conventional boundaries between disciplines, theory and practice and inside and outside of the academy.
The Sociology Department at Goldsmiths was established over 50 years ago and our approach builds on our history. We are a large and dynamic department made up of undergraduate and postgraduate students on our different programmes, PhD, post-doctoral and early career researchers, academic and professional staff, and visiting fellows.
We are internationally recognised for our cutting-edge intellectual culture that combines critical, pluri-disciplinary and inventive approaches to research and teaching across the social sciences, arts and humanities.
This site showcases some of what we do. More information on the department is available on our other website.
