Festival of Social Science

The ESRC Festival of Social Science is an annual celebration of the social sciences!

This year ESRC is taking a new approach to the Festival. The 2020 Festival of Social Science (FoSS 2020) will be a digital-first event, to be held from 7-15 November. FoSS 2020 will feature exciting and creative events run by our 34 partners.

From its start with 25 events in 2002, the festival has grown and evolved – we’re expecting over 300 events in 2020 spread throughout the UK, with topics ranging from coronavirus to Brexit, mental health, political activism, parenting and climate change. Check out our partners to find out more, and get involved with to the conversation on Twitter by using #ESRCFestival.
