Liverpool Sociology Study Trip

Earlier this month Dr Andy Zieleniec and Dr Ala Sirriyeh led a study trip to Liverpool with undergraduate students from two sociology modules, City, Culture, Society and Moving People: Migration, Emotion, Identity.

Highlights of the trip included Albert Dock, Liverpool One, Museum of Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime Museum, International Slavery Museum, and Chinatown.  There were lots of opportunities for students to reflect on ideas connected to their current studies: regeneration, gentrification, urban culture, mobility, identity, and belonging

What our students said about the trip:

“It was really interesting finding out about the history of the city – the slavery museum was especially interesting as it’s an area of history we didn’t do at school.”

“The slavery museum was very enlightening – overall it was an awesome day.”

“Really enjoyed going around the museum and seeing the culture of Liverpool. Enjoyed being in a city. The city was really pretty.” 

“I enjoyed the freedom we got to discover the city ourselves. The information we were given was really helpful, it made us make the most out of our day. It was really enjoyable.”

“I had a really fun day exploring a new city. Embracing new sights and smells, seeing museums and shopping! Very good day and would love to visit again.”

"Slavery museum very interesting – learnt a lot. The day was good value for money. Thank You.”

"Liverpool’s museums offered a great insight into the city’s heritage, its culture and industrial foundations.”
