Dr Greg Hollin

Lecturer in Social Theory

I’m interested in the sociology of science and medicine and my work is largely focused around two areas. Firstly, I’ve undertaken socio-historical analyses concerned with autism. This work has particularly focused upon how autism is understood within experimental psychology and neuroscience. Secondly, I’m interested in new materialism and more-than-human research. I’ve examined these questions in relation to of the consolidation of beagles as a breed of choice within laboratories but am also working on other cases.

Research Interests
