The Charity

The Sociological Review Foundation Limited is a pioneering new charity that exists to promote the study and teaching of sociology and related disciplines. As part of our charitable activity we carry out some of the following activities:

Supporting Early Career Researchers

We are proud to support Early Career Researchers, both inside and outside of the university environment. We offer conference bursaries, writing retreats, and workshop support for unfunded PhD and postdoctoral researchers to present at major conferences and organise a number of events for Early Career Researcher each year.

Early Career Researchers are regularly appointed to the Sociological Review editorial board where they receive training on refereeing and other skills under the mentorship of an experienced editor.

The Sociological Review Fellowship

The Sociological Review also has a historic commitment to Early Career Researchers through its fellowship scheme, which is based at Keele University.

The purpose of the fellowship is to provide early career sociologists (within two years of completing their thesis) with the opportunity of spending a year writing their first monograph length book or converting their PhD into journal articles.

The Sociological Review Annual Lecture, Conferences and Symposia

Each year, the Sociological Review Foundation Limited organises the Sociological Review Annual Lecture, as well as conferences, workshops or symposia that bring together established and new researchers in any area of sociology. Most of our events are video recorded and published online.

The Sociological Review Seminar Series

Each year we sponsor single-themed research seminars in any area of sociology to share and produce imaginative cutting-edge work of sociological and social significance. An important aim of the seminar series is to produce papers that will result in publications of interest to the readership of the Sociological Review as well as an online Special Issue.

We welcome proposals that involve collaborations across institutions and disciplines and connect sociology to wider communities and the arts.
