Wed Apr 07 13:49:27 GMT 2010

>I would like to invite you to the second 
>ConnectionFactory event, *Public Engagement for 
>Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences 
>Researchers*. It takes place on 29th at the 
>Regent St campus, 1pm-5pm. David and I also ask 
>you to email this information around to your 
>academic contacts. You can register here (for free):
>We are going to discuss novel ways of research dissemination.
>Great amounts of time and money are invested in 
>doing original research studies in the arts,
>humanities and social sciences, but at the end 
>of the process, projects still often produce
>academic journal articles for a small elite 
>audience, accompanied perhaps by an information
>website and a specialist conference.
>A growing number of researchers are recognising 
>that this may be a disappointing end for
>their original work. The impact agenda, 
>supported by the government and research
>councils, is also raising awareness that 
>researchers should be becoming more adventurous
>with their dissemination activities and public engagement.
>In order to engage and inform the interested 
>public and relevant organizations about their
>research, some researchers are making use of 
>online videos and blogs, innovative workshops
>and performances, and other accessible materials.
>Public Engagement for Arts, Humanities and 
>Social Sciences Researchers will be a symposium featuring:
>* Inspiring examples of work that has exchanged 
>research findings and ideas with interested 
>parties in non-traditional ways, especially those using Web 2.0 and digital
>* Informed discussion about how to take 
>advantage of the potential of the internet for
>research dissemination and dialogue;
>* First-hand stories from practitioners about what worked  and what didnt.
>More information at
>You are all welcome to attend and email this 
>around - I think many researchers could be interested in this.
>Best wishes,
