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.

Amongst over 60 international speakers, plenaries include:

Mark Llewellyn, AHRC, Director of Research Matthew Dodd, BBC Radio Three, Head of Speech Programming and Presentation John Stack, Head of Tate Online, Anna Eavis, Curatorial Director, English Heritage Joanna Sofaer, University of Southampton, HERA-funded ‘Creativity and Craft in Middle and Late Bronze Age Europe'

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.

A pre-conference concert on Tuesday 9 July will feature the music of the ‘Celestial Sirens', a group led by Dr Laurie Stras that uses performance practice to explore early choral music.

Programme details and online registration are now available at the Conference Website. Registration closes 10 June 2013.
