19th Festival of Social Science

College of Social Sciences Calendar of Events 2021 

This year's Festival of Social Science at the University of Glasgow offered a bumper selection of events and activities, including panel discussions and public debates, interactive workshops, online musical events, exhibitions, animation and documentary screenings, outdoor participation events and policy launch webinars. 

In this year of COP26 in Glasgow, many events were themed around social science, the environment and sustainability, but city planning, criminology, the living wage, fake news, youth employment, work psychology science, end of life and socio-economic deprivation were also featured themes.

After the success of the previous year's Virtual Festival, many events were available to attend online but in-person attendance wass also being offered, and there were a few hybrid events to attend online or in person. 

These are all the events organised by the University of Glasgow.

These events were part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2021 and were made possible thanks to funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)which is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
