What is Social Sciences Week?

Now in its fifth year, Social Sciences Week is a series of events held across Australia during the second week of September. Offering insights into the impact of the Social Sciences on our lives, this initiative was established to introduce Social Sciences to the wider public and discuss social and political change and the potential such change promises for our daily lives. UNSW will be participating again this year, this time digitally.
