Summary
This book empirically examines academic conferences in the social sciences, and explores the purpose and value of people interested in the social sciences attending and presenting at national and international academic conferences. Using a highly original structure and style, the book considers the damaging impact of neoliberalism on conferences, and academia more widely, and explores the numerous barriers to conference attendance. It will be of interest to students and researchers who attend conferences in fields spanning the social sciences, as well as those interested in the effects of neoliberalism on academia. Dr Donald J Nicolson worked in academic research for 13 years and was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. He is currently a freelance writer. His works have been published in the likes of the British Medical Journal, Health Technology Assessment, The Cochrane Library, The Scotsman, and London School of Economics Impact Blog
