Wrap up event & exhibition opening

Thursday 18 June 2015, 4 – 5 pm Learning Studio, School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester

The AHRC-funded project, Research in Translation: Public Engagement through Exhibition Displays, supported 12 Early Career Researchers from the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences working in a number of UK universities to produce a small, collaborative exhibition presenting their research. The project sought to provide participants with an opportunity to think creatively and critically about their research and disseminate it widely using the exhibition medium.

Join us for a public debate, drinks and a tour of the exhibition as we wrap up the project and think about its impact and future developments and reflect upon the possibilities that Research in Translation indicates for the future of knowledge production and dissemination in the Humanities.

The event will include:

A presentation from the project leaders, Dr Ceri Jones (University of Leicester) and Dr Serena Iervolino (UCL Qatar)
Exhibition opening and tour
‘In conversation with the team’…. Ceri and Serena talk to some of the participants and mentors from the project, to find out about their experiences of working on the exhibition, to discuss the project’s challenges, opportunities and impact.

We hope you can join us!
