Engaged Practice Symposium

Venue: Birkbeck 30 Russell Square, Room 101

This event has ended.

This event will bring together Birkbeck researchers with an active interest in involving publics in research and knowledge production.

To support this engaged practice, sessions will be focused on sharing experience, networking, and exploring opportunities for funding. Researchers from across the Schools will talk about their projects; discuss their methodologies, challenges, and successes. We will also consider the future support that would be beneficial throughout the engaged research process.

This event is open to all Birkbeck researchers with an interest in dialogue with non-academic groups, throughout the lifespan of their research.
