Analysing Social Change Research Group

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The Analysing Social Change Research Group is dedicated to the methods and theories that underlie social research in diverse thematic areas. Contemporary society is experiencing rapid social change, with new and constantly changing social challenges and issues. It is critical that such social changes are appropriately analysed. The ASC Research Group focuses on knowledge production, generated through research assessing how social change can be conceptualized using different theoretical lenses, and the methods through which data on social change are produced and analysed.  While it is inevitable that studies of social change will focus on a wide array of social topics, they share the underlying conceptual question of what is causing such change, what its broader implications are, and how social changes can be mapped.
