Sociology Seminar Series 2014-15

New year, new seminars

We have a great series of talks coming up for the new year. Our first talk is on Jan 28th. Dace Dzenovska, a social anthropologist from the Institute of Cultural and Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford will join us to discuss Latvian outmigration, diaspora politics and questions of sovereignty and statehood in a historical moment shaped by post-Soviet nationalism, neoliberalism and European integration.

In February we welcome Daryl Martin from the University of York for a joint talk with the Visualities research group. Daryl will be looking at photographic recordings of death and loss. In March we are joined by Joan Haran for a joint PEALS/Sociology seminar on the relationship between science, society and science fiction.
