Professor Gurminder Bhambra

Gurminder K. Bhambra is Director of the Social Theory Centre and convenor of the British Sociological Association's Theory Study Group. She is also co-editor, with Professor Robin Cohen (Oxford), of the new monograph series, Theory for a Global Age, published by Bloomsbury Academic.

Her research addresses how, within sociological understandings of modernity, the experiences and claims of non-European 'others' have been rendered invisible to the dominant narratives and analytical frameworks of sociology.

While her research interests are primarily in the area of historical sociology, she is also interested in the intersection of the social sciences with recent work in postcolonial studies. Her current research project is on the possibilities for historical sociology in a postcolonial world.
