Not the motorcycles – the British Sociological Association, which is celebrating its diamond jubilee.

The British Sociological Association was established in 1951 as the national subject association for sociologists in the UK with the straightforward primary objective to “promote sociology”.

Since then, many notable sociologists have been involved with the Association, including our own Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robert Burgess, who was BSA President from 1989 to 1991.

The latest issue of the journal Sociological Research Online features a special section on the impact and influence of the BSA over the past six decades. Among the contributors is Professor Barbara Misztal from our Department of Sociology, whose paper reflects on the importance of the BSA during her early career at the University of Warsaw.
