Alasdair B R Stewart

Research Associate, School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Glasgow

I’m a sociologist based in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow. I’m currently working as a Research Fellow and Data Lead in the GCRF Centre for Sustainable, Health and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC). I’m also a Co-Investigator for a Health Foundation funded qualitative project on the policy discourse and lived experience of employment and welfare conditionality for people with mental health problems.

I’m interested in how large-scale social processes, state-crafting, and social policy enter into and shape lived experience and inequality. My work explores this across three key overlapping areas: homelessness and dwelling; social suffering and (mental) wellbeing; and, precarity and social security.
