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.
UNSW Social Sciences community discusses driving positive change and shaping an inclusive society for a better tomorrow.
5 September | 12pm – 1pm | We invite you to a program of talks and Q&As showcasing innovative and interdisciplinary research in the social sciences hosted by Associate Professor Mary Zournazi.
