The Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory is currently running a student-led, AHRC-funded Collaborative Skills Development Project. This project seeks to build new skills related to the impact and engagement agendas among members of the up and coming generation of PhD students and Early Career Researchers.
This upcoming symposium will enable participants to reflect on issues related to public engagement.
The theme of the symposium is “Engaged Research”, and it will address the following questions:
- What is community engagement?
- What is the responsibility of researchers to local communities?
- By what means is authentic community engagement actualised?
Please Register by 30 May 2013. A registration form and more information is available here.
