This event is part of the Sociology Seminar Series.

With the advent of novel biomarkers measuring different aspects of human biology being collected in large surveys, there has been an explosion of biosocial studies on associations between new biomarkers and social phenotypes. Alongside, there has been increasing criticism of the methods and theoretical implications of these biosocial studies from sociologists, anthropologists and other social sciences. While much of the critical focus has been on the biological to social framework, this talk will highlight some social to biological research examples within the sociology of work, health and wellbeing.

The Sociology Seminar Series is convened by Bess Bukodi and Colin Mills.  For more information about this or any of the seminars in the series, please contact
