The University of Salford is proud to host the 6th European Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction conference (EU-SSSI), "Working the Interactionist Tradition: Contributions, Legacies and Prospects", which will be held at our MediaCityUK Campus from 29 - 31 July 2015.
In 2013, over 300,000 over 75s were believed to have spent Christmas Day alone (Royal Voluntary Service, 2014). Christmas events may provide a sense of social belonging for older people who would otherwise be alone at this time of year. If you work with older people and want to know more about developing and evaluating Christmas events in local communities then this symposium is for you.
Salford International Media Festival provides a vibrant forum for media stakeholders to debate the current climate and play an influential role in shaping the future of the sector. The Festival builds on the rich history of the Nations & Regions Media Conference, widened now to provide a platform for academic discourse and debate and an inspirational programme of activity to support next generation media talent. The Festival features three distinct complementary events over four days in November 2015, providing an accessible programme for a national and international audience with many opportunities to network.
