- About Us
The Bauman Institute was founded by Dr Mark Davis in September 2010 and is based in the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Leeds. We now have research and teaching affiliations with academic colleagues and students in the Faculty of Arts, Leeds University Business School, and the Sustainability Research Institute with a shared focus on developing critical empirical analyses of social, economic, environmental and political life.
We are inspired by the sociological imagination of Zygmunt Bauman and critical responses to his work. Our work is a critical extension of the insights provided by Bauman’s sociology.
The Bauman Institute was launched to develop new insights and new directions of interdisciplinary social science research with a particular focus upon rethinking global society in the light of shared social, economic, environmental and political challenges in an age of modernity seemingly dominated by financialized capitalism.
