Birkbeck Institute for Social Research

A hub for the dissemination and discussion of social research in London and beyond.

Birkbeck Institute for Social Research


The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research currently supports five working groups. These groups are multidisciplinary bodies formed for the purpose of investigating important areas of knowledge within social research. 

They organise regular meetings, workshops, lectures, film screenings, and seminars for the purpose of furthering and disseminating of the research of the group. Students and members of the public are invited to participate in the working groups' events.
