WISERD 2013 Conference – Call for Papers

The WISERD 2013 Conference will be held on 25-26 June 2013 in the University of Glamorgan Conference Centre [now the University of South Wales]. Keynotes include: Professor David Martin (Southampton); Professor Lindsay Patterson (Edinburgh); and Professor Laura McAllister (Chair of Sport Wales).

The 2013 conference is the fourth annual WISERD conference, and follows on from three successful conferences, held in Cardiff, Swansea and Bangor Universities. WISERD conferences attract colleagues from across the academic, policy, public, private, and third sectors in Wales; and have become established as one of the most important events in the social science calendar.

All papers and posters submitted by postgraduate students will be automatically entered into the competition. If you do not wish your paper/poster to be entered, please note this in the ‘additional information’ section of the abstract proforma.
