Report by the Head of Department of Social and Political Sciences

A major activity during the year has been the restructuring of our teaching for Part II of the Tripos. The general aim is to maintain our multi-disciplinary Part I but to introduce a disciplinary or bi-disciplinary Part IIA and a disciplinary and interdisciplinary Part IIB. Our proposed Part IIA provides students with the opportunity to study a single discipline in some depth, or in the case of sociology and psychology, as social psychology is a subject in both, two disciplines. The Part IIB will allow students to study their chosen discipline at a more advanced level together with some work in another discipline or an interdisciplinary paper. We have proposed the IIA and IIB structure because this offers a clear progression from year to year and the opportunity to provide advanced research-led third year teaching to students who will be prepared with a strong disciplinary grounding. The research strengths of the Department will be reflected in the courses to be offered in the Part IIB which includes new papers on the sociology of political economy, advanced social theory, family and gender and biotechnologies and society. We are also diversifying our assessment procedures in our new proposals with a dissertation becoming compulsory for all candidates in the Part IIB except those in the politics stream and possibility of substitution of two 5,000 word essays for one of the usual closed book three-hour examinations. A Report on the new proposal will be put before the University early in the Michaelmas Term and we hope to begin teaching the new Part IIA in 2000/2001 and the Part IIB a year later.

Two members of the University staff have resigned during the year. Dr Gill Jones, who was Assistant Director of Research in Family Research and Deputy Director of the Centre for Family Research, has moved to Keele University to take up a Chair in Sociology. Dr Sonia Mazey, lecturer in European Politics, has taken up a lectureship at Hertford College, Oxford. We wish them both well in their new posts.

We welcome Paul Martin who is currently a Research Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford who will be taking up our Assistant Lectureship in American Politics in the new year. Last January Beth Howe became our new General Board Administrative Officer, moving from an administrative post in Leicester University. Dr Liz Chapman who had been a PhD student was awarded a Post Doctoral Fellowship by the Wellcome Trust under their biomedical ethics programme.

We will be making a number of new appointments in coming terms. One will be a Professor of Psychology in the Social Sciences. This is a new post which will add a second professorship to our current establishment of a Chair in Sociology. We also hope to be appointing lecturers in European Politics and in the Sociology of Health and Illness.

There has also been a major change in the office as Miss Helen Gibson took early retirement in July. Helen has been our Administrative Secretary for 14 years and her sure and steady hands have kept the office on the straight and narrow path through a period of rapid expansion and change. But very fortunately Helen is not going very far and will be back to work for us as a part-time Senior Secretary.

It has been a busy year for research with the award of a significant number of major grants. Among them were grants for work on ‘Globalizing and the Publishing Industry’ for Dr John Thompson (ESRC), on ‘Understanding Genetics’ for Professor Martin Richards (Wellcome Trust), on ‘Decision Making for Caesarian Section for Dr Jane Weaver (Nuffield Foundation) and on ‘Social Capital, Participation and the Causal Role of Socialisation’ for Dr David Halpern (ESRC). Dr Sonia Mazey was awarded a grant by the ESRC on ‘Gender Mainstreaming and European Public Policy’. With her new appointment this research will now be carried out in Oxford. During the year the University formally constituted the Centre for Family Research. The Centre remains in the Faculty but now has its own Management Committee

This is my last report as Head of Department. It has been a very challenging and extremely busy three years. I wish Bryan Turner well as he takes up the post for the coming academic year.

The Social and Political Sciences Faculty Library

1998-9 has seen a continued increase in the annual number of lendings which this year stands at 33,565. This represents an increase on last year's figure of just over 5%, and an increase on 1993/4, ie. over a five-year period, of 15%.

The Library's Computerised Circulation System (CCS) is scheduled to go live at the start of Michaelmas Term. This has been an ongoing project for 2 years. The new system will bring many benefits to the Library's users, including the ability to renew books by e-mail, and find out whether or not a book is already on loan from any computer terminal. The majority of overdue notices will be sent out automatically by e-mail. The system will also produce comprehensive usage statistics which will allow, for instance, the acquisitions policy to be better directed at texts which are in high demand.

Inter-Library Loans are now requested via the British Library's Automated Request Transmission System (ARTTel), and through the BL's web site. This has reduced the average waiting time for requests to be fulfilled from around four weeks, to less than 48 hours. Two-thirds of requests were satisfied in less than one and a half working days. Inter-Library Loans have also been requested directly from Trinity College, Dublin and the University Medical Library.

A number of new electronic resources have been widely promoted by the Library Assistants. These include PsycLIT (the American Psychological Society's PsycINFO databases) and several networked CD-ROMS. PsycLIT was initially available only from a few machines which had the necessary software, but this software is now mounted on the web, and consequently the databases can be searched from any networked computer in the University. Likewise, the CD-ROMS will soon be available on the PWF.

Another innovation this year is that the Library's accessions lists are available on the Faculty's web site. The Library's pages are currently being reviewed, and will include links to all electronic resources used in the University that we believe to be relevant to the Social & Political Sciences.

During the year, the Assistant Staff have attended the following courses and meetings, to improve the quality of service provided by the Library:
