Welcome to the Bauman Institute
Dr Mark Davis
Director of the Bauman Institute
The Bauman Institute is an international research and teaching centre dedicated to analysing major social change around the world. Inspired by the sociological imagination of Leeds' Emeritus Professor, Zygmunt Bauman, our primary research interests are: money and consumerism, ethics and social responsibility, new technologies and data, as well as resistance and power in â€˜liquid modernityâ€™.
We are committed to offering research-led teaching for our students through two Masters Programmes and our linked Seminar Series that contribute to the already vibrant academic community within the School of Sociology and Social Policy here at Leeds.
We currently offer MA Social and Political Thought and MA International Social Transformation, which will be of particular interest to anyone with an interest in new ideas and critical thinking across the humanities and social sciences.
For further information, please explore our website or contact us at: email@example.com
Started in February 2013, the CRISES research project will explore â€˜community resilienceâ€™ through an ethnographic case study of a community-owned renewable energy project in Swansea Bay.
Building upon our interests in â€˜shared social responsibilityâ€™ and the â€˜social life of moneyâ€™, the CRISES project aims to explore the concept of â€˜community resilienceâ€™ at three levels:
- as an emerging policy framework and
- as it is experienced â€˜on the groundâ€™, which we will explore through ethnographic fieldwork.
- Date: Tuesday 18 November, 4:00 â€“ 5.30pm Location: Room 12.21/12.25, Social Sciences Building Guest Speaker: Hugo Radice Panel: Tracy Shildrick, Mark Davis A Bauman Institute workshop to discuss Jon Cruddas and Jonathan Rutherford'sÂ 'One Nation: Labourâ€™s Political Renewal'
- Presented by the Centre for Jewish Studies, FAHACS, CentreCATH and The Bauman Institute, Professor Bryan Cheyette will lead a discussion on his new book,Â Diasporas of the Mind: Jewish and Postcolonial writing and the Nightmare of History.
