Q-estival 2019: People, Data and Society
The Exeter Q-Step Centre is celebrating six years of teaching and research and our move to a new home.
We are holding a series of workshops, seminars and keynote addresses around our key research labs: Education and Life Course Studies, Policing in Practice and Computational Social Science. We will also be hosting a related Arts & Culture stream.
The event, to be held 09th - 13th September, is intended to bring together members of University and the wider Q-Step community to enrich our understanding of social data science, the data needs of our community partners and the broader relationship between culture, data and society.
