Politics research

Our research

The School of Languages, Cultures and Societies is home to a diverse group of social/political scientists working in a broad range of sub-disciplinary fields and with regional specialisms spanning all corners of the globe.

We're connected not only by a shared interest in the interplay between culture and politics but by research agendas that advance a critical perspective on, and often take a cross-disciplinary approach to, the study of socio-political phenomena.
