Workshop 1: 'Show & Tell' - SARN UK (AHRC-Funded Event) 

Friday, 24 May 2024, University of Cambridge 

This workshop aims to provide an opportunity for Syrian academics and artists in the UK to learn about each other’s work and explore collaborative potential. The workshop will be organised in 3 sections:

I-      Presentations: participants will present short overviews of their research followed by Q&A with the aim of exploring potential collaborations with other researchers or artists who are in attendance.  The idea is to identify intersections and synergies that might enhance the multidisciplinary and intellectual richness of each project. Presenters are encouraged to highlight the strands of their research they’d like to collaborate on and how their current work in their own discipline might benefit from working with colleagues in other disciplines, including the arts. 

II-     Breakout group discussion: This is an opportunity for participants who have been intrigued by one or more of the presentations, or those who can imagine potential collaboration, to discuss with one another potential collaboration. Some of informal discussions would ideally evolve into more structured clusters with concrete proposals before the second workshop in Autumns 2024. 

III-   Academic Journeys: In a round table setting, interested participants will discuss their journey into UK academia and the impact of the Syrian conflict upon those journeys.
