The Centre for Social and Political Thought (formerly the Centre for Critical Social Theory) was established in 1997. It is interdisciplinary, spanning social sciences, political philosophy, intellectual history and the humanities. Research in the Centre is diverse but is committed to critical social theory broadly construed. The Centre is the home of the peer-reviewed journal Studies in Social and Political Thought, which is edited and managed by faculty and graduate students. The vibrant intellectual culture of the Centre for Social and Political Thought grows out of the best traditions of the University of Sussex: radical thinking and academic excellence in teaching and research.
