ISSR Forum – Wednesday 8 June 2022

Social & Community Futures: Making a difference to all

The 5th annual ISSR Forum will bring together research colleagues of all stages from member Schools of Business, Education and Social Work, Health Sciences, and Social Sciences and have identified a forward-looking theme and also one that emphasises the potential, arguably the mission, of social sciences research to make a difference to individuals and to communities.

The Forum will give us the opportunity to celebrate some of the impressive cross-disciplinary work undertaken with the support of ISSR Interdisciplinary Incubator Grants (IIG); it will allow PGR students and new colleagues to showcase and discuss their work in a series of lightning talks and it will mark the return of the Global Scholar Programme by way of a keynote talk by (Dr Son Truong, Associate Professor, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada)

We will also hold interactive panels that will give colleagues the opportunity to present on their current work and are, therefore, looking for abstracts for papers that fit, broadly within the overall theme of the day.
