The new SSGS magazine

SSGS magazine promo

We're pleased to announce the publication of SSGS Magazine, which offers insight into the breadth of work across the School's eight disciplines. 

The digital publication created for staff, academics and students, aims to establish a sense of 'School community' through celebrating the successes within the School of Social Sciences and Global Studies. 

In the first issue, readers can expect a range of topical articles from our academics, as well as Q&As with staff spanning Team Assistants and Staff Tutors, to Lecturers and our Director of Studies. The magazine aims to represent all roles within SSGS, so readers get a real sense of how SSGS functions as a School.

Some fascinating pieces to look out for include: City water matters by Prof. Sophie Watson (p.21); Building a safe, non-violent society by Dr Keir Irwin-Rogers (p.23) and Peace, conflict and positive change by Prof Parvati Raghuram (p.25). There's also an interview with our Media Fellows, Dr Alison Penn and Dr Jo Paul, who talk about the typical process involved in collaborating with the BBC, not to mention the input from our academic consultants to inform the programmes, many of which have gone on to win awards. They share some of the exciting projects that are currently in development.

The first issue of the magazine is out now and can be viewed online.
