STAR's Podcast - Social Thought

Coming soon to Social Thought is our conversation with John Holmwood, president of the British Sociological Association, Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham, and co-founder of the Campaign for the Public University and Discover Society.  We talked about the 'neoliberal knowledge regime,' higher education in the U.K. and the future of sociology as a discipline.  Also, check out our latest discussions with Yale sociologist Margarita Mooney, Princeton sociologist Robert Wuthnow, and Salisbury University sociologist Alexander Stoner.  We are getting lots of hits!


Coming soon!

Themed around topics of inequality and resilience, Volume 33 will feature interviews with Lane Kenworthy and Mary C. Waters and an article on the intersection of religion and economic inequality, and will also feature an interview with Robert Wuthnow and research articles on ways people and communities remain resilient in response to adversity and social change.   Please visit our subscription page to reserve your copy.
