Sociology of Sleep

We have been carrying out research on sleep for nearly 20 years and the Sociology of Sleep Group has published widely on ageing, sleep and gender.

We are researching how we sleep, when we sleep, where we sleep, and with whom we sleep, and how these are all influenced by social, cultural and historical factors.
