Why study the social sciences?

Professor John Allen, Dr Georgina Blakeley and Professor John Clarke tell us how they first became interested in the social sciences. They explain what they enjoy about working at the OU, and talk about their research and teaching and where they draw their inspiration. They also share the advice they would give their younger selves.
