We are staging a one-day workshop in London on 13th May as a briefing and
networking event for our Is Britain Pulling Apart? project. The project, run
by the universities of Stirling, Manchester and Edinburgh, examines social
distance, social connections and the impact of social interactions within
The workshop features talks and discussion on the themes of:
• Social connections and social distance
• The past, and future, of social connectivity
• Tools for measuring social distance.
Confirmed speakers include Danny Dorling (Sheffield), Mark Tranmer
(Manchester), Vernon Gayle (Edinburgh), Paul Lambert (Stirling), Richard
Zjideman (Utrecht) and Dave Griffiths (Stirling).
We are inviting Pecha Kucha presentations (6 minute 40 presentations of 20
slides lasting 20 seconds each) from researchers, at any career stage, with
an interest in social relations, social connections or social distance.
Interested presenters should apply by 13th April.
The event is free and staged in Central London (Royal Statistical Society)
with lunch provided. A limited number of travel bursaries (for travel within
the UK only) are available for interested speakers and delegates (deadline
