Research Profile

Dr Tom Hall 

Teaching Profile

I contribute to the School’s undergraduate programme at levels one, two and three, and across all the different schemes of study; but primarily as a lecturer in sociology and social policy. At present my teaching includes the following modules:

  • Metropolis: Urban Life and Consumer Culture;
  • Inequality and Division of Labour;
  • Social Policy and Young People;
  • Sociology of Culture.

I also contribute to taught postgraduate modules, including the MSc/Diploma in Social Science Research Methods, and to higher degree supervision.

School Responsibilities and Professional Contribution

I am a member of the SOCSI Management Group, the School’s key strategic committee. In addition, as co-ordinator for the undergraduate sociology programme and a member of the School curriculum review working group, I have taken on significant responsibility for the rationalisation, revision and development of the School’s teaching and undergraduate programmes over the last two years. This work continues, and I am currently serving on a working group tasked to develop a model for a new, general social science undergraduate degree scheme at Cardiff. I am also a member of the SOCSI newsletter editorial team.

I am a member of the University of Wales-wide forum, Anthropology Wales, and have served on the steering committee for this association. I am a member of the British Sociological Association, and have recently been invited to join the BSA Membership Task Group. I am also a member of the European Association of Social Anthropologists, and a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute
