Professor Zygmunt Bauman lecture at Leeds

With a nod to his 2012 book, This is Not a Diary, the Bauman Institute has compiled a collection of articles and personal reflections contributed by colleagues, friends, students, and the wider sociological community. Each offers a different door through which to enter the life and works of Professor Zygmunt Bauman.

Read the articles, memories and tributes on the Bauman Institute website. 

Professor Zygmunt Bauman, celebrated as one of the greatest social thinkers of our times, passed away on Monday 9th January 2017 at home in Leeds. He was 91. Professor Bauman was head of the sociology department at the University of Leeds until his retirement in 1990. The Bauman Institute was founded in 2010 in his honour.
