The Social Stratification Research Seminars have been running almost every autumn since 1968. For most of that time they have been organised in Cambridge by the Social Science Research Group (formerly the Sociological Research Group), an organisation within the Department of Sociology, University of Cambridge. Over recent years meetings have been held in Cambridge (2006, 2008-9, 2012-3, 2016), Cardiff (2003-5), Edinburgh (2014, 2017), Milan (2015), Stirling (2007, 2011) and Utrecht (2010).
