We are delighted to announce that our 2017 Festival of Social Science will take place from 4-11 November 2017.

Without events being organised and run by individuals and groups across the country, putting forward creative and innovative ways to present social science, there would be no Festival to celebrate. Your hard work and dedication is greatly appreciated and valued.

In 2016 over 270 events ran across the UK, taking the social sciences to diverse and new audiences covering a range of topics from early development to dementia. Last year’s Festival reached over 29,500 people - a 14% increase on 2015.

This year will be the fifteenth ESRC Festival of Social Science and we hope that it will be even bigger and better. Why not take a look at some of the videos, photos and presentations, from events held in previous years, to see the breadth and variety of events that take place.
