Introduction to Public engagement, part 2

Friday 11th March 2022, 2-4pm via Zoom

Course Description: 

This two-hour session will make space for you to think how your research could be enriched through public engagement. Together we will critique approaches to engage communities and explore how to respond to the demands for ‘research impact’ in funding and job applications.  

The session will be led by Dr Georgia Haseldine, Public Engagement Fellow at the V&A Museum, who will share her research practice which has included setting up a temporary brickfield to interrogate London’s housing crisis and working with anti-racism activists in Stoke-on-Trent to re-display Josiah Wedgwood’s anti-slavery medallion.
