Event details

In what ways can new research in the Arts and Humanities make an impact beyond the academy? And how can processes of knowledge exchange transform traditional approaches to Arts and Humanities research?

In July 2013, Southampton University will host the first major conference on this topic, bringing together delegates from higher education, the heritage sector, creative industries and the performing arts to discuss inter-relationships between Arts and Humanities research and public engagement.

The conference aims to explore high-quality, innovative new work in the Arts and Humanities and to situate the ‘impact agenda' within a creative, critical, research-led context.

The conference will also include the official launch of the new ‘Discover Medieval Chester' website, part of an AHRC-funded Knowledge Transfer project led by Professor Catherine Clarke (English Department).

Proposals for papers are invited before 1 December 2012. Registration opens in January 2013.

For further details, please visit Discover Medieval Chester website.
