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.

Social patterning of sleep

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.

"The Sociology of Sleep Group at the University of Surrey has shown the diverse ways in which the social context of everyday life has profound influences on sleep quality."
