Punctum: Reflections on Sociology in Public

Join us for a talk by Bluecoat Sociologist in Residence Dr Paul Jones, who will be looking back at his time here, and reflecting upon some of the ways in which academics - and sociologists in particular - can seek to become more ‘public’ in their work. Drawing together reflections on what has been an exciting and extremely stimulating year’s residency, he will question the responsibility of academics to find alternative ways of doing their research and teaching. Paul will be suggesting some ideas for future public collaborations and partnerships that have grown from his time as Bluecoat’s Sociologist in Residence. 

Paul will be joined by the well-known author, Guardian writer and social commentator Lynsey Hanley, who will be presenting a short lecture at the event. Reflecting on some of her own experiences, Lynsey will explore the ways in which research debates can be made public. As well as being a prominent author - having written Estates: An Intimate History (2007) and Respectable: The Experience of Class (2016) - she is also a highly-acclaimed media commentator, with recent pieces in The Guardian on homelessness and on Radio 4, on housing. Lynsey is currently studying for a PhD at Liverpool John Moores University.
