Diversifying Public Engagement in Classics: Showcase Event
Friday 5 July 2019, 1-4 pm – Room 802, Institute of Education
Organisers: Emma Bridges (Institute of Classical Studies, UK) and Zena Kamash (Royal Holloway University of London, UK)
This event will allow delegates to explore the work of classicists (broadly conceived) who are working on a variety of engagement projects designed to share their research with non-specialist audiences. We aim to foster conversations about what good practice in public engagement for classicists looks like in 2019, and to challenge the research community to consider ways in which existing practice might be developed and diversified, both in terms of the methods used and the audiences reached. Delegates are invited to drop in at any time during the session to view exhibits and posters, to participate in hands-on activities, and to talk informally to researchers about their methods of engagement.
This is a free drop-in event; all are welcome.
