Maximising Impact through Research Methods: a View from Early British Sociology

Annual Methods Lab Lecture
Prof. John Scott (University of Plymouth) Maximising Impact through
Research Methods: a View from Early British Sociology
Discussant: Prof. Les Back (Goldsmiths)

The Methods Lab is calling on our inter-disciplinary resources and traditions to critically inhabit the space of social intervention and social impact.

In the context of the current growth in visual methods, John Scott will deliver a lecture on how early British sociologists used dramatisation & film documentary alongside mass observations surveys to offer resourceful methodologies, as well as ways of speaking to publics beyond the academy.
