Higher Education in the Liquid Modern Era: Swirling down the Drain?

This one day, BSA sponsored conference, hosted at the University of Leeds in conjunction with the Bauman Institute, will be looking to discuss the following;

  • How has sociological theory impacted on the ethical, economic, social and political landscape?
  • Is there space for substantive ethical development within ‘the academy’?
  • How might proposed drives towards efficiency, impact and ‘value-for-money’ lead to irrational outcomes?
  • Can postgraduate students assert the value of sociology by opposing the changes inside academic institutions?
  • Will there still be space for critical sociology or will changes to funding limit critical thought?
