ESRC Festival of Social Science: 3 – 10 November 2018

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Festival of Social Science offers a fascinating insight into some of the country's leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic, and political lives - both now and in the future.

During the Festival, which runs this year from 3-10 November, University of Exeter researchers and PhD students working in a social science area at the University are invited to open up their research to a number of different audiences with events across Devon and Cornwall.

All South West (and national) events
