Reaching a Wider Audience

1 May 2012, 12:45 - 14:30

CRASSH, Alison Richard Building



This panel discussion is jointly organised with the Careers Service. Targeted at postdoctoral researchers in the arts, humanities and social sciences, the event will look at the values, pros and cons of public engagement, media appearance and publishing for a broader audience. Our speakers will be discussing whether and how these can be useful stepping stones in one's early career, whether they can help researchers get permanent academic posts, and how to get involved in such activities. 


  • Dr Corin Throsby (early-career researcher in English, Cambridge; BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinkers)
  • Professor Mary Beard (Classics, Cambridge)
  • Nicola Buckley (Head of Public Engagement, Cambridge) 
  • Dr Helen Webster (Research Associate, CRASSH, Digital Humanities and Employability)
