Event details

In April 2023, the School for Business and Society is launching a new work in progress seminar series that provides an informal opportunity to present and get feedback on developing research. The aim is to create a space for researchers across the university to share emerging findings and developing agendas, with a particular focus on poverty, inequality and social security. 

Seminars will take place every six weeks, and will be Chaired by Dr Ruth Patrick (School for Business and Society). They will be hybrid sessions, so that people can attend in person or online as they prefer. 

This university-wide seminar series is hosted by the School for Business and Society, in partnership with the Cost of Living Research Group.

Please get in touch if you would like to present at one of the future seminars. 


Seminar One


Dr Chris Devany - '"It's the kids that suffer": Exploring how the UK's benefit cap and two-child limit harm children'

Dr Kate Andersen - 'Young male 'hidden NEETs' and their 'doxic' refusal of the benefits system'

Dr Daniel McArthur - 'Growth in geographical segregation/social polarization in levels of education'
