Student-led Blog

It Ain’t Necessarily So is a collaborative social science blog run by research students in SPS with the support of the Graduate School. 

The blog is always looking for new contributors and staff writers, and its success depends on the interest and commitment of research and taught PG students. It is a fantastic community resource in SPS and also offers individuals a great chance to hone skills in knowledge exchange and writing for non-academic audiences.

Rebecca Hewer is the founder of IANS and current Editor-in-Chief. Her team can be contacted here.
