DSA2017: Sustainability interrogated: societies, growth, and social justice
University of Bradford, 6-8th September
The DSA's annual conference in 2017 took place at the University of Bradford. While encompassing the broad range of development studies interests, the suggested focus was on Sustainability Interrogated: Societies, Growth, and Social Justice, as elaborated here.
The event attracted 350 participants from the Development Studies community for three days of panels, keynotes, study group business meetings and social events. In addition to the discussions and networking, conference participants were able to enjoy multi-cultural Bradford’s world leading South Asian cuisine, explore the Victorian model village of nearby Saltaire and see David Hockney’s paintings at the gallery in Saltaire and the new Hockney Gallery in Bradford.
Next year's conference will be at the University of Manchester from 27-29th June.
