This pathway aims to integrate the consideration of themes in social theory with the study of substantive topics, as well as give a thorough grounding in research methods. This course is taught by Dr Monica Moreno Figueroa, Dr Brendan Burchell, Dr Darin Weinberg and Mr Ali Meghji; it covers some of the major theoretical contributions to the sociological study of marginality and exclusion and some key substantive topics. The theoretical contributions covered will explore current conceptual debates on marginality, exclusion and precarity, intersectionality, racism, sexism and class exclusion; postcolonial debates on exclusion and marginality, health inequalities and precarity; housing and the reproduction of everyday life; labour inequalities and social production.
