Understanding Society – A Series of Free Events Examining the Ideas That Shape Our Everyday Lives

3-10 November 2018

Not all scientists wear lab coats. Social science researchers take on the great challenges of our time; guarding privacy in the age of big data, tackling the housing crisis and informing the debate on criminal justice. They apply science to the social.

The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University are home to world leading social science researchers working at the frontier of knowledge. We work with communities, governments and business leaders to understand society and improve lives. Join us to find out what our researchers do and why they do it.

There are events for all ages and interests, including talks, debates, performances, exhibitions and immersive experiences. Part of the national ESRC Festival of Social Science.
