Professor Paul Bagguley

Research interests

My main interests are in the sociology of protest, social movements, racism and ethnicity economic sociology, urban sociology, and sociological theory. In the fields of protest and racism and ethnicity studies I have worked most recently on the 2001 riots, South Asian women and higher education, and the impacts of the 7/7 London bombings on different ethnic and religious groups in West Yorkshire, and superdiversity in traditional retail markets.

With Dr. Yasmin Hussain I have recently completed projects on South Asian women and higher education, the impact of the London bombings, and the urban 'riots' in 2001. Previously I have carried out research and published extensively on unemployment and social protest, anti-poll-tax protest, and new social movements.
