Why do a degree in Sociology?

About this Speaker

I work in the field of political sociology within the sociology programme at Canterbury Christ Church University. I have broad multidisciplinary interests, mainly covering sociology, politics and social psychology, which are united by my interest in social movement theory, socio-political protest and citizenship. My current research interests include the empirical analysis of local conflict over the siting of energy infrastructure, and NIMBY theory. I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies between 2001 and 2012.

I am currently Deputy Programme Director for Sociology. I also convene four modules within the sociology programme: Theorising Citizenship; Citizenship and Protest; Globalisation and the Environment; and the Individual Studies suite. I am also involved in post-graduate teaching, including supervising a number of PhDs.
