Social Science Table

The Wolfson Social Science Tables are for any Wolfsonians and guests who want to get together every now and again to talk social science. Whether you’re a student or a fellow, whether you've come back from 2 years in the field or have spent the last 2 years struggling with Stata (or a manuscript!), whether you’re an eminent geographer or just someone who wants to figure out what social science means, we’d love to see you at the tables.
