The Shape of Things That Came? Social Science and the Social World


Professor Jamie Morgan explores profound issues in terms of the role of social science in both accounting for continuity and change and in contributing to how the future follows from the past.

 

What we think is going to happen typically contributes to what does, and yet the future is poorly conceived based on the past when we consider previous futures from the present as current “pasts”.

There are numerous significant examples of this and profound issues in terms of the role of social science in both accounting for continuity and change and in contributing to how the future follows from the past. Social science is not passive.

In this professorial inaugural lecture, Leeds Beckett's Professor Jamie Morgan will discuss aspects of this based on almost twenty years of work exploring different facets of socio-economic systems.

Jamie Morgan is Professor in Leeds Business School at Leeds Beckett University.

This lecture is part of Leeds Beckett University's Professorial Inaugural Lecture Series.
