The Sociology teaching team in the Department of History, Sociology and Criminology have published the very first edition of an annual anthology showcasing some of the innovative and outstanding work produced by their undergraduate dissertation students.

This year’s anthology comprises the work of final year students Sharifa Elamin, who writes about young ethnic minority women and neoliberal culture, Yusuf Pandor, who explores the theme of meritocracy and the educational system, and Rumena Akhtar, whose work investigates the challenges faced by Bangladeshi heritage patients in accessing healthcare services.

Dr Ben Pitcher explained "All three dissertations have qualities that make them distinctive of the kind of work our students produce in Sociology at Westminster: they are theoretically and historically informed, they are motivated by a keen desire to engage and challenge social inequalities, and they are attuned to understanding the frequently complex and intersecting nature of those inequalities."
