Posted by rmt22 at Oct 24, 2019 11:16 AM |
The University of Leicester is supporting this year’s ESRC Festival of Social Science, running from 2-9 November.

This year’s Festival of Social Science runs from 2-9 November - and the University of Leicester is running a series of events in and around the city.

This is the 17th annual Festival of Social Science and we are proud to be involved. The festival offers a fascinating insight into leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives – both now and in the future.

At this year’s Festival, University of Leicester events, lectures, seminars and guided walks will cover a wide range of hot topics including healthcare, rehabilitating offenders, religiously-motivated hate crime, climate change, architecture, disability and inequality, responding to childhood trauma prescribing cannabis, rural living, museum activism, feminism and activism, and the positive social benefits of boxing.

At the events, you’ll discover how social science shapes public policy and contributes to making the economy more competitive, as well as giving people a better understanding of 21st century society.

A full list of events is available at our Festival of Social Science website. The events are all free to attend but you will need to register to reserve your place.

For more information and the latest updates on the Festival, contact esrciaa@le.ac.uk or follow us on Twitter at @LeicesterSocSci.
