This one-day event will bring together academics working on classical subjects in order to share strategies for successful public engagement activities, and to explore the mutual benefits which public engagement can bring both to researchers and the various publics with whom their research is shared.
As well as featuring a series of talks from academics who are involved in current public engagement projects, the programme for the day will allow attendees the opportunity to share their own ideas (no matter how embryonic) for engagement activities based on their current research. There will be time allocated for facilitated discussion of potential projects with other participants, with a view to fostering collaboration, creative thinking and the sharing of experience.
In addition, participants will be invited to share their views on how the Institute of Classical Studies, as a national subject centre whose remit is to promote and facilitate research in Classics and related disciplines, might best support public engagement in UK universities where research in classical subjects is taking place. This will help to shape the future direction of our UK-wide public engagement strategy.
Those who are involved with research in Classics at all levels, from PhD students to experienced academics (regardless of whether or not they have any prior experience of public engagement), are welcome to participate.
