Sociology in Action week

(23 January 2019)

For the first time, the Department of Sociology are trialling a new ‘Sociology in Action’ week - a chance for students, postgraduate researchers, staff, as well as visitors from the wider Durham community to shine a sociological and criminological light on the issues facing society today. Our flagship event is on Monday, 18 February where Durham Sociology staff and students will come together to discuss ‘Fake News’. To book and find out about other Action Week events, see the website.

We can promise a stimulating, exciting, intellectual environment with short ‘provocations’ rather than conference style presentations, a guarantee of no powerpoint, and an opportunity to discuss what fake news is, why it is important, and what (if anything) we should be doing about it.

In addition to this, there will be many more events taking place during Sociology in Action Week from 18 February - 22 February - view the full programme and sign up for events via the website.
