This afternoon Adam and Ben had a fun visit with students studying Sociology at the City of Westminster College, Paddington Green.
Adam talked through the research process in relation to some recent work on dogs in the city, from the generation of initial research questions to final process of writing up. Ben discussed some work on race and roots culture, and the important relationship between curiosity and context in the research process.
We then heard about some of the students’ fascinating research ideas – from Islamophobia on public transport to mental health in BME communities to the sociology of Ebola and work with cancer survivors. We learned a lot, and we got some tea and cake too. Thanks to Sociology and Psychology teacher Sasha Whyte for inviting us.
