The Sociological Review is one of the world’s foremost journals for sociological inquiry in all traditions.

Not only are we committed as a journal to the far-reaching intellectualism of sociological thought, we are also championing a cause: that sociology matters.

Upcoming event: The Practice of Public Sociology

For over a decade public sociology has been a mainstream topic of discussion within the discipline. This event takes as its starting point David Mellor’s 2011 argument that “we don’t need to debate public sociology anymore; we need to get good at it“. We invite early career researchers who share this aim to join us for a day of workshops, discussion and debate about how we can collectively improve our practice of public sociology.

Between boards, trustees, editors and staff, it takes many people coming together to produce The Sociological Review, especially now that we’ve broadened into a community organisation.
