How does social science research influence our social, economic and political lives? How can we use this research to prepare ourselves for the future challenges facing society?

Come and join us for the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2019 to gain a fascinating insight into some of the social science research taking place at Bournemouth University and find out how we’re helping to understand and shape society. The festival is a unique exploration of our society now, and how society may look in the future as we adapt to the various challenges in the world around us.

This year we are exploring a number of different issues through a series of talks, interactive workshops, discussions and exhibitions. These events are aimed a wide range of audiences to share understanding and spark conversations that can make a difference to society.

Events are taking place across Bournemouth and Poole.
