Creating Publics – Monday 26th March

March 19, 2012

Creating Publics, a new initiative, will be launched next week at the Open University.

Whether it is from the ‘top down’ (by funders or government) or from the ‘bottom up’ (from activists and scholars), the issue of how publics are formed and how the public role of social science research should be understood and enacted are ones that continue to rise up the HE agenda. Creating Publics is a new three-year CCIG project that is supporting collective discussion, experimentation, new thinking and practice around these issues. You are invited to join us to draw out the contemporary stakes and futures of public engagement. The event takes place at the Berrill lecture theatre at the OU in Milton Keynes, but you can also participate online via the live webcast.

Anyone interested in the workshop we have scheduled with Professor Grossberg the following day (10.30-13.00, 27 March), email Sarah Batt (a.s.c.batt), as there are still a couple of places left.

Venue: Berrill Lecture Theatre, Open University, Milton Keynes.

Time: 2.00-4.00pm
