Social Policy academics to take part in TEDx 2015 - 'The Road Less Travelled'

After a successful first even last year, TEDx returns to the University of Birmingham in 2015. With ideas worth spreading, some of the School of Social Policy's leading academics will grace the TEDx stage in the Aston Webb building on Saturday 21 March.

This is an opportunity to hear ideas at the pioneering end of research. Speakers will question the idea of conforming and share ideas worth spreading. Preconceptions will be challenged and debate will be sparked.

Academics from the School of Social Policy who will be taking part are:
