Professors in the School of Social Science share a common view regarding the importance of the unity of social science: hence the singular. Although each of them is rooted in his or her discipline, all do work and engage in debates that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Their critical approach extends to both epistemological and social issues. The scholarly inquiry they conduct addresses contemporary issues from a variety of perspectives but always includes a theoretical edge.
