2009 ESRC Festival of Social Science (UK)
"The ESRC Festival of Social Science runs from 6-15 March 2009 as part of National Science and Engineering Week. The Festival provides 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. This annual, weeklong programme of events held across the UK is designed to communicate information about the social sciences and how social science impacts on our lives. The events take a variety of formats, from traditional lectures and seminars, to exhibitions, film screenings and topical debates. Furthermore, they are aimed at a range of different audiences, including policy makers, business, the media, the general public and students of all ages."
