We are pleased to announce our conference for postgraduate students and researchers interested in Interdisciplinary Social Research. There is increasing interest in interdisciplinary research within the Social Sciences due to its ability to create impactful new knowledge and insights. But, what does this mean in practice? Our conference aims to acknowledge and incorporate the contributions from sociologists working with disciplines beyond the social sciences, considering the impact that social research can have on the natural sciences, arts and humanities, and with industry and corporate partners.
