Change is all around us..... ....but how many people are equipped to make change a positive process?

18.04.2007
How do individuals and groups navigate circuitries of power to bring about change? Goldsmiths' Department of Sociology has developed a forward thinking new Masters Degree in Geo-Sociology which will equip its students with the knowledge and understanding to manage change.

The MA in Geo-Sociology is a research and training programme concerned with developing an analytical and practical understanding of geopolitics, socio-spatial development and institutional change. It will allow students to explore new approaches to thinking about and researching the geo-social and geopolitical conflicts we see today.

This multidisciplinary course looks at change management and strategic development, but in a different way, a way that encourages partnerships, working together in new ways and using networks.

Professor AbdouMaliq Simone, who leads the course said "we set up this masters because there was a gap in the way that people traditionally thought about change management and what actually works and so our aim is to try and bring together skills is planning, critical analysis, arts, and activism to bring out new capacities in different kinds of institutions and fields of work."

Applications for the September course are still being accepted, and students from a wide range of backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Im Focus: DNA repair: a new letter in the cell alphabet

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
