Festival of Social Science now open

The Economic and Social Research Council invites applications for its festival of social science call. This supports the organisation of a public engagement event and participation in the Festival of Social Science, to be held between 3 and 10 2018 November across the UK.

The following events are especially encouraged:

  • events in London, Swindon and Wales;
  • events that are run by or featuring early-career researchers. Events must be free, feature social science and not be aimed primarily at academic audiences.

Need inspiration? Take a look at our previous events, read more about the Festival in the latest edition of Society Now or read the blog article ‘The makings of a successful Festival event‘ by Dr Christopher Deeming.

More details are available via email: and the application form is here. Completed forms must be received by 17.00 on 1 June 2018.
