The Social Theory Centre, founded in 1997, is devoted to the promotion, development and discussion of social theory. We are based in the Sociology Department but have members from across the humanities and social sciences. Our primary activities consist in organising symposia, workshops, the Authority & Political Technologies network, and early career training events. Our members are involved in running important social theory websites including Global Social Theory and Critical Legal Thinking. The centre also provides an important locus of activity for faculty and students involved with the MA programme in Social and Political Thought.
