Social Sciences Week  9-15 September. The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) has invited AWGSA to partner in Social Sciences Week. Social Sciences Week aims to:

  • Encourage, support and create the opportunity for social science researchers (from early career to senior scholars) to engage with non-academic audiences.
  • Show-case the diversity and relevance of social science research.
  • Further the reach of cutting-edge social science research.
  • Promote and increase awareness of social sciences research and the contribution they make to the wellbeing, cohesion and success of society.

Any event held during Social Sciences Week that fits broadly with the above aims can be part of the program as long as the activity is primarily public facing.  By scheduling them during Social Sciences week and co-badging them in this way, it will be possible to reach a wider audience and highlight the value of the social sciences to a greater extent than can occur with stand-alone events. If you are planning to apply for AWGSA funding to run an event, please consider Social Sciences Week as a possible time to do so.
