Social Science in The Age of Transformation and Disruption: Its Relevance, Role, and Challenge

The previous symposium was held in 4-5 September 2018 in order to response our two main concerns about how social science will contribute to solve the problem of humanity and where is the position of social science in the era of disruption.

Technically, the symposium was consisted of two series activities, namely round table discussion and the symposium itself. The first activity aimed to bring social scientist in UGM to discuss and reflect philosophically on the relevance, roles, and challenges of social science. Meanwhile, the symposium activities in general were planned to consist of several series of events ranged from the opening, virtual keynote speech sessions by Prof. Anthony Giddens, panel discussion sessions, and several parallel discussion sessions.
