The call for event proposals for the ESRC Festival of Social Science is now open! This is a fantastic national festival will take place from 4th to 11th of November 2017. It celebrates the best of social science and engages a wide public audience with the key issues that social scientists are currently addressing. We are keen to see as many of our social scientists at BU to take part in this exciting public engagement initiative as possible.
Please contact us if you’d like to get involved – we’re open to ideas; public debates, conferences, workshops, interactive seminars, film screenings, virtual exhibitions and more. 2017 will be the fifteenth year that the ESRC will hold the Festival of Social Science and we are welcoming event proposals targeting a non-academic audience including young people, third sector, the public, business or government.
In previous years we’ve run some pretty exciting events, including this one from Dr Kip Jones whose 5th-anniversary film screening of Rufus Stone is now being mentioned on the ESRC website. Take a look here: http://www.esrc.ac.uk/public-engagement/festival-of-social-science/previous-events/

If you would like to make an application to run an event as part of the Festival or for further information, please do not hesitate to contact Genna West (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Joanna Pawlik (email@example.com) from the Research and Knowledge Exchange Office.
