This cluster examines what a community is and demonstrates how communities are changing in relation to globalising economic and political processes that operate on different scales in varied regional, national and international contexts
Key research themes include:
Urban change and communities
Temporal and spatial aspects of social change
Indivdual and collective action
The Authority and Political Technologies IAS Network involves colleagues and PhD students from Sociology and a range of social-science disciplines who share a broad intellectual background influenced by ‘Foucaultian’, 'Deleuzian', ‘post-structuralist’ and ‘cultural-theory’ approaches.
