Social Silences

Social Silences
Social silences are topics which people avoid talking about. Things that are there but are regarded as taboo, or too difficult to address. Because they're not talked about, challenged or debated sometimes viewpoints become tacitly accepted in society or an organisation. This interactive workshop aims to confront three social silences which surround qualitative research.

Date:Wednesday 11 September 2024
Time:1:00pm to 4:00pm followed by networking drinks
Venue:Wellington House, 125-130 Strand, London WC2R 0AP
