Social Research Association Annual Conference 2014


‘Changing social research: Evolution or revolution?’

The SRA annual conference is a unique event: it is the only forum the UK has for bringing together social researchers from all sectors and disciplines to share knowledge and ideas, to debate our most pressing professional issues, and, of course, to meet and talk.

This year's event will be held at the British Library.

There is much talk of technology-driven revolution in the world of social research. Will big data, web surveys, mobile research, neuroscience, social media research, and related digital methods change the ground-rules of research practice? Are established practices becoming obsolete? Or will it be more a matter of assimilating what’s new into established principles of research? The conference will showcase examples of high quality UK social research covering the full range of innovative and traditional approaches, highlighting both ruptures and continuities in our changing research practice.
