Hello and Welcome to the Sociology of Education Thematic Group!

Dawn Gilmore and Dr Martin Forsey will be co-convening this group for the 2017 term.

Aims and objectives

Thank you for becoming a member of the Sociology of Education Thematic Group. We hope that you feel comfortable sharing in this practice with colleagues. As a group we are united by our aims and objectives to further the sociology of education. The aims and the objectives of the thematic group will remain the same as previous years. You can refer to these aims on our TASA thematic group page.

What to expect

There are 73 members in the group. As your convenors, we will work to collect information from the group, consolidate it, and redistribute it in an organised fashion. This means that you can expect to hear from us twice a month: once to collect information and again to redistribute the information that we collected.

Calls for information and distribution dates

  • The call to collect information will be emailed out on the second Friday of each month.
  • The redistribution of this information will be on the last Friday of each month.

While these dates have been declared in order to facilitate information sharing, please do not hesitate to contact us at other times.
