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.
Sociology, history, and philosophy of the human sciences; medical sociology; science and technology studies; social theory; autism spectrum disorders; social and cognitive neuroscience; qualitative methodologies; experimental psychology; more-than-human sociology and geography.
I’m involved in teaching within the school at both under- and post-graduate levels. In particular, I contribute to teaching on social theory, gender and medical sociology, and disability studies.
