Activism in Sociology Forum

During the BSA Annual Conference 2013 many discussions within the streams and outside of the structured space centred upon the debate of how we recognize, practice and disseminate ‘public sociologies’?  There appears to be an urgent need within Sociology to bring together different academics, researchers, and social scientists from all subject areas within the discipline to use their work within a public context. There are already research groups, individuals, and schools who are recognizing this challenge; the Activism in Sociology Forum (ASF) aims to bring these groups together.
