About Sociology Group

A single spark can ignite the flame! And that has been our journey from one person to now many at Sociology Group. We started in 2017, and have been going strong! We believe Social Science, a field which is studying us human beings, is like studying life itself. 

It is thus important for us that subjects like Sociology, Psychology, Economics, History and others are not just subjects for people enrolled in schools or colleges, but for anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about them. 

If you are someone who does indeed want to learn more, then you have come to the right place!

We have different initiatives such as Social Stories, Interviews, Meet the Professor, Book Reviews, through which we create opportunities for those who share our eagerness and excitement to learn about the ever evolving world around us. We offer a space to professors, researchers, students, individuals and learners where they can share their work, learn and connect with those who share similar interests.

We have all heard the phrase ‘Sharing is caring!’ and that is true for knowledge as well. Knowledge is best gained when it is shared. We have curated for you academic articles, research papers, dictionaries, academic writing guides, exam preparation guides, and articles to help you learn new things and get inspired.

Our Vision 

The purpose that we wish to fulfill at Sociology Group is to establish a community with authors, writers, professors, learners, and students. It is a space – a virtual space –  where everyone can come together, learn, share, and discuss Sociology and many more disciplines such as Psychology, Economics, History, etc. 

Here we want to break the traditional format of a classroom, a single teacher and many students. Here we want us all to be students and for us all to be teachers. 

You can come to our website and reach people across the globe by publishing your work and starting a conversation. We hope that by our work you will be able to understand society better and are driven to bring about a positive change. 

Our Initiatives

Social Stories: The BrainChild of Sociology Group

Our Social Stories initiative is a gateway for sharing your stories about success, failure, social empowerment, or any relevant experience in academia with others. You can write about your journey, what approach you took to overcome your challenges, whether it worked or not, or what you think in hindsight you could have done differently. 

We can all agree that academia can be competitive and fast paced. Everyday is a new challenge. Just to make this journey a little easier for those who may be facing the same challenges as you, such as facing discrimination; a new journey of life at a not so conventional age of 40 or anything that tells us your story.

Meet the Professor – Interview Series 

The bearers of knowledge in the society are our teachers, do you agree? Through books, journals and teaching in universities they share with us knowledge. What we read in books or journals sometimes can have difficult language, or language which is very technical. What do you do then? You could go to Google and ask, Or keep a dictionary with you at all times, Or you could simply join us at the Meet the Professor Interview Series. 

These are insightful sessions where the professors discuss various aspects of Sociology through their journey. They offer an insight into the job opportunities in the field, sometimes history, activism and more. This initiative offers an opportunity to learn outside the classroom, because why should learning be limited to a physical space in this digital age?

We have interviewed esteemed professors from around the world, such as Dr. Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs (Professor, Modern Languages and Cultures, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Seattle University); Richard Scharine (Professor Emeritus, University of Utah); Lindsey Martin-Bowen (previously Criminal Law and Procedure Lecturer, Blue Mountain Community College); Dr. Christina Jackson (Associate Professor of Sociology, Stockton University) ; Dr. Stephanie Wilson (Co-founder and Director of Consulting Services at Applies Worldwide) to name a few.

Book Reviews

If you are looking for your next read, or you are a writer who is looking to have your book reviewed then we have the right services for you! 

A good book review generally includes a quick synopsis, a brief history of the author, highlights the key moments of the book and an unbiased detailed evaluation of it. We offer professional, structured and well written book reviews. For authors this means that readers will get an essence of your book, and the chances of them picking it up will increase!

For learners and readers it will mean that you can hand pick the books that best suit your interest, passions and genre of reading. We also hope to inspire you to pick up books of a different genre, writing style, interest area. 

Through our initiative, we want to give a platform to authors and particularly ‘indie’ or independent authors for taking their work to a larger audience. We encourage genres of fiction, non-fiction, essay, folk tale, autobiography, short story, poetry, fable authors to come forth with their work.

We have a team of knowledgeable book reviewers and writers from various backgrounds who carefully review the books we choose. Among the books we have reviewed are Mirror Tree By AnneMarie Mazotti Gouveia, Capital: A Critique of Political Economy. Volume I: The Process of Capitalist Production by Karl Marx, Cliff House by Nora Weirich and books from many different genres.

Interviews With Authors 

While book reviews tell you more about the contents of the book, a one-on-one, candid conversation with the authors tells you about the journey of the book. From this initiative you will better be able to understand why the book was written, what inspired the author, how long it took, what the readers can take from the book. 

If you are a budding writer or someone wanting to take up writing, hopefully, the interviews will inspire and excite you to write and publish your own work. 

We have till now interviewed authors such as James W. Marquart, Author of Unthinkable: Who Kills Their Grandmother, Maheen Mazhar author of “Through her eyes” and Umar Siddiqui author of “Weightless, Woven Words,” and many more. 

Our Other Initiatives 

We also give opportunities to budding writers through our Social Sciences writing competition where we encourage essays from students across different disciplines. It is held in the months of September and October. Along with this we run a suicide prevention campaign. 20% of our funds are allocated towards child and welfare activities. We aim to bring about gender inclusivity, which is reflected in our logo and we are driven everyday to bring about a positive change in the world!
We are active on our social channels on  Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Telegram, where you can follow us for our latest posts and updates!
