Birkbeck Institute for Social Research
The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research aims to support and connect social researchers at Birkbeck to amplify interdisciplinary, innovative, and publicly engaged social research at Birkbeck and to engage with scholars and the public on issues of significant public interest, especially issues that concern the impact of social inequalities on people's lives.
The Institute plays an active role in promoting social research to a wide range of publics within London; encouraging cross-disciplinary debate, critical thinking and the stimulation of new research agendas on important social issues.
The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research activities include seminars, conferences, symposia, thematic groups and other academic events related to members' core interests. The Institute invites many prominent visiting speakers to the College each year, and also organises workshops and seminars that contribute to extending and enhancing methodological expertise and innovation in social research. Recordings of many of its events are available as podcasts, ensuring that many thousands of people who are not able to attend can experience some of the vibrancy of academic life at Birkbeck.
