About Us

Welcome to the Bauman Institute

The Bauman Institute is an international centre at the University of Leeds dedicated to the promotion of teaching and research in social and critical theory.

Inspired by the legacy of Professor Zygmunt Bauman at Leeds, the Institute gathers scholars based locally, nationally and internationally whose work addresses social and political transformations at a global and planetary scale in the light of classical and contemporary theory.

The Institute also maintains the Janina and Zygmunt Bauman Archive, which is a major depository of their life's work. We organise regular conferences, book launches, lectures and discussion events, as well as supporting the publication of new works related to this living legacy
