ESRC Festival of Social Science

Come along to the 2017 ESRC Festival of Social Science with a variety of events taking place from the 4th – 11th November across the Bournemouth University campus. The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Festival of Social Science offers a fascinating insight into some of the country’s leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives both now and in the future. This celebration of the social sciences takes place across the UK via public debates, conferences, workshops, interactive seminars, film screenings, virtual exhibitions and much more.

In 2016 BU ran more than a dozen events on topics including healthy eating, financial scams, mobile working, identity theft, intellectual property and dementia.

The festival gives us the opportunity to share just some of our social sciences research with the general public, find out their thoughts and feelings about specific subject areas and inspire those within our local community to learn more about social issues that may, at some point, impact on all our lives.

Festival events are open to staff, students, schools, businesses, charities and the general public.

Information on bookings for this year’s events will be available soon.
