Public Sociology Network

BY JEFFREY GOATCHER
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 20, 2014

Jeffrey Goatcher is a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University on the subject of public sociology. Jeffrey argues that all sociology is public, because we are within the sphere that we are trying to study and we can never be outside of it. According to Jeffrey, sociology has always been outward facing since it was dreamt up- it is about understanding what society is in order to keep it from falling apart- or in order to put it back together when it does 'break.'
