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.

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.'
