Collaborative Research and the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences: A One Day Workshop at CRASSH

18 June 2014, 10:00 - 17:30

CRASSH Seminar room S2, Upstairs in ARB

Times are changing.

Collaboration for Arts, Humanities and Social Science Postdocs is more than the icing on the research cake: it now lies at the heart of the research paradigm for the 21st Century. The AHRC, for example, is increasingly funding collaborative and interdisciplinary research. 

More and more, projects will not solely operate under the traditional model of a single researcher, but draw upon a range of partners from disciplines, institutions and sectors required to answer bigger and more far-reaching questions.

To build a successful research career within or outside the academy, you will need to connect with – and impress! – a broad network of professional colleagues. Employers value, perhaps above all, communication and interpersonal skills. This is your opportunity to develop these skills, to find out more about collaborative research, and to debate its implications for the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Intended sessions and the questions raised by them include:

What is collaborative research? Why do it?

Its ‘nuts and bolts’

How to apply for grants with Drs Daniel Wunderlich and Barry Dixon, the University’s Arts, Humanities and Social Science Research Facilitators

A round table discussion with academics involved in current collaborative research projects

Drinks reception to develop your collaborative skills
