Sociology of Sleep Group
Sociologists at the University of Surrey have been pioneering empirical research on the sociology of sleep since 2001.
Colleagues in the department are developing work at the interface of health and illness and crime and criminal justice. This work includes studies of prisoner wellbeing and trajectories of use of 'legal highs'.
Sociology at Surrey has a long history of health research.
Projects have included a US/UK comparison of clinical decision-making of primary care physicians (Arber with John McKinlay), a study of sleep and ageing women (Arber and Skene), dyadic analysis of couples' health (Meadows) and numerous activities surrounding 'recovery'.
