Started in February 2013, the CRISES research project will explore ‘community resilience’ through an ethnographic case study of a community-owned renewable energy project in Swansea Bay.
Building upon our interests in ‘shared social responsibility’ and the ‘social life of money’, the CRISES project aims to explore the concept of ‘community resilience’ at three levels:
- as an emerging policy framework and
- as it is experienced ‘on the ground’, which we will explore through ethnographic fieldwork.
- In his lecture Professor Zygmunt Bauman will reconsider man’s relationship with his world from the perspective of the stage for which he uses the term 'liquid modernity'.
- A response by Mark Davis to Aditya Chakrabortty's thought-provoking article in The Guardian - Economics has failed us: but where are the fresh voices?
Welcome to the Bauman Institute
Dr Mark Davis, FRSA
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: consumerism, ethics, new technologies, and power within the age of ‘liquid modernity’.
The Bauman Institute is committed to offering research-led teaching for its students through two Masters Programmes and 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.
