The 2017 Festival of Social Science (#esrcfestival) will take place in Southampton this 8-9 November.
The event in Southampton is organised by three ESRC-funded centres in the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton:
- the Administrative Data Research Centre for England (ADRC-E)
- the Centre for Population Change (CPC)
- the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM)
in collaboration with the Public Engagement with Research unit at the University of Southampton.
ADRC-England will see its Deputy Director, Professor David Martin, talking about the complexity of getting detail counts of UK migration.
Hope & hops: the science of society
Over two engaging nights, research scientists will share their research and expertise into two challenging issues of our time:
Wednesday 8th November: Is migration really changing the UK as we know it?
Thursday 9th November: Will welfare and pensions really ensure we have a happy and healthy retirement?
Each night there will be special guests, pub quizzes, hands-on activities and lots of prizes to give away.
No previous knowledge is needed, everyone is welcome. All talks, discussions and activities will be accessible to everyone.
The event is FREE but registration is required through Eventbrite.

Time: doors open at 7.00pm, event starts at 7.30pm
