ESRC Festival Northern Ireland 2018

Northern Ireland’s three universities are once again coming together for the annual ESRC Festival of Social Science.

Led this year by Queen’s University Belfast, the Festival will run from 3-10 November and will feature a total of 26 events organised by social science academics from Ulster University, The Open University and Queen’s.

The UK-wide Festival aims to open up social science research to new audiences by showing how such research has an influence on our everyday lives.

A series of talks, screenings and workshops offer festival goers the chance to debate, discuss and discover how social science shapes everything from our working life and our children’s learning to how we engage with our families and within our communities.

Highlights this year include reflections on the Good Friday Agreement, a discussion on borders and Brexit and a bus tour of looking at Belfast's grassroots peacebuilding history.
