The Connected Sociologies Curriculum Project is a project of The Sociological Review.
We provide free resources for the rethinking of social science concepts, categories, and topics that enable us to make better sense of the worlds we live in.
We organise events bringing together scholars, teachers, students, sixth-formers and members of the public to explore sociological issues.
We have also developed a curriculum organised in modules responding to specific debates in the social sciences. The curriculum is designed to supplement teaching at A-level (secondary school level) in related subjects. In each individual session, you will find a video recording of a lecture with accompanying transcript, podcast, slides, suggested readings (mainly open-access) and discussion questions suitable for classroom activities at secondary school and undergraduate level.
Currently we have 8 modules
- The Making of the Modern World
- British Citizenship, Race, and Rights
- Colonial Global Economy
- Policing "Crime" and "Violence"
- Modern Social Theory
- Migration, Borders, Diaspora
- The Environment & Climate Change
- The Politics of Inequality
