Dr Michael Lambert

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Social Inequalities


I am a historian who uses sociological approaches to understand health, welfare and social policy-making and implementation in twentieth century Great Britain, and the impacts these have on people, society and the wider world. At the heart of this approach is inequalities and the role of power. My research uses qualitative and quantitative approaches underpinned by a range of archival, documentary and organisational records. I also have an interest in the role of place, concentrating on the Liverpool, Merseyside and the North West of England. I undertake teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate modules on social work, sociology, health and inequalities.
