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