The ESRC Festival of Social Science starts today and all told there will be over 70 events in 25 towns and cities throughout the country.
As part of the festivities the ESRC are also launching Britain Today – looking at the state of the nation in 2007 through the a mixture of academic opinion pieces alongside informed journalistic writing. Britain Today costs £3.95 and is available from WHSmith.
Leading academics have also contributed to the latest edition of The Edge another ESRC publication that digests what is happening in the world of Social Science research.
Intute: Social Sciences are running the Internet for Social Welfare seminar (now fully booked) in Edinburgh as part of the Festival. We hope to bring you some coverage from the seminar as part of the next Intute: Social Sciences Podcast in a couple of weeks time.
