Kate Woodthorpe

Policy Press

Written seven years post-PhD, in this chapter the author reflects on her love for the discipline of Sociology and the choices she has made in her sociological career so far. Having degrees in sociology from Lancaster, Warwick and Sheffield, and having worked at the Open University and the University of Bath, Woodthorpe argues that experiencing different intellectual environments and varying sociological specialisms within departments is beneficial to an early career academic.
