ESRC Festival of Social Science

Festival banner

We are pleased to confirm that this year's ESRC Festival of Social Science will be taking place across the UK from 1-8 November 2014.

Congratulations to all successful applicants. The standard was extremely high this year, forcing some very tough decisions on the panel, but we hope this will allow us to offer both a topically and geographically diverse Festival.

Our online programme with full details of all events will be available in early September. You can also download a copy of our Festival flyer (PDF, 1.9Mb) to see an overview of events in your area.

Please email if you would like any additional information in the meantime.
