The University of Sheffield is planning a symposium type event on 5 July 2016, in order to engage those in the Arts and Humanities, both academics and professional public engagement staff, in conversations about public engagement as method. This is something that we have been considering for some time and feel sure that similar discussions are happening elsewhere.
Further details and a download of the call for papers is a www.sheffield.ac.uk/artsenterprise/publicengagementasmethod
Papers are intended to be short provocations to provide a starting point for discussion on the day rather than full conference papers, and the closing date for abstracts is Wednesday 13 April 2016. Please do circulate widely to your networks if you can.
Do get in touch if you have questions. Details of how to register for the event will be available in due course.
