What's on in the Research and Graduate School in the Social Sciences
The academic activities of the RGS are intended to strengthen links between research staff and students from a variety of Academic Schools, particularly in research areas which cross Academic Schools and traditional disciplinary boundaries. The RGS enables social science†researchers to be more fully aware of the array of social science research currently being undertaken and the often close links between externally funded research and PhD programmes.Both academic research staff and PhD students from member Academic Schools of the RGS are encouraged to participate in its activities.
If you require assistance in organising a social science†event, or if you have suggestions regarding the RGS events programme, please do not hesitate to contact us with your ideas.
