Anthony Pryce

Reader in Sociology, Head of Department of Applied Psychosocial Sciences, Community and Health Sciences, City University, London, UK.



Anthony’s first degree was in the History of Fine Arts and Music, before undertaking mental health training at the Bethlem and Maudsley. Increasingly interested in the social contexts of health and illness, he went on to gain an MSc with Distinction in medical sociology. His PhD on the construction of masculinities in the field of genitourinary practice further established a lifelong commitment to interdisciplinary using social theory as well as history, art  and other media to reveal the spaces between disciplinary paradigms and  inform the teaching of sociology and research in academic and healthcare practice.

Much of his research is concerned with sexualities and sexual health both within professional health care and in the everyday social realities beyond a clinical arena. He has published widely and presented at many national and international conferences.

Having been Director of Research at the St Bartholomew School he became Senior Lecturer in Sociology before his appointment as Reader and head of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in the School of Community and Health Sciences at City University London. He was awarded a Personal Chair and was Professor of Sociology of Sexualities and Health until he retired in 2011.  Anthony is an Honorary Professor in the Centre for Sexual Health Research and Practice in the School of Health and Social Care at Greenwich University, as well as at City University London. He retains a strong international profile including an Adjunct Professorship at University of S. Australia, Adelaide.
