Overview

Join Wales' largest social science conference!

The WISERD 2014 Annual Conference follows on from four successful conferences, held in the Universities of Cardiff, Swansea, Bangor and South Wales.  Bringing practitioners, policy makers and social scientists together, WISERD conferences have become established as one of the most important events in the social science calendar.

This two day event will take place on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th July 2014 at the MedRus Conference Centre at Aberystwyth University. This annual event showcases policy relevant research in Wales and attracts colleagues from academic, policy, public, private and third sectors concerned with social, economic and political issues.

We welcome academics and non-academics from a diverse range of disciplines and areas of interest to share their research.  This year over 70 papers will be presented and we welcome two keynote speakers from leading figures in academia and politics.

Themes covered at the conference this year include:

  • Culture, Values and Creative Industries
  • Civil Society
  • Economic Life
  • Health, Environment and Wellbeing
  • Transitions in Education, Childhood and the Labour Market
