Carol McNaughton Nicholls

Policy Press

Carol McNaughton Nicholls provides an outline of her career in sociology and shows how privileged she feels leading her research interests. The chapter offers a carefully deliberated advice section to young academics. Much of this relates back to the importance of sociology and the passion sociologists have for the discipline. In particular the chapter shows the importance of caring about what you do.
