Light is fundamental to our lives. All social life happens in some degree of light and darkness. Light structures the kinds of social practices and interactions we enter into at home or on the street, how safe we feel and how well we can navigate through social spaces. Configuring Light/Staging the Social is an interdisciplinary research programme based at Sociology Department of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Supported by the LSE and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), it explores the role lighting plays in our everyday life to help build a better social knowledge basis for lighting design interventions.
