** These sessions are open to ALL Arts & Humanities doctoral researchers at Leeds, Sheffield and York Universities **
We would like to encourage you all to consider innovative ways to make your research engaging to other research in your field and beyond, as well as outside academia. If you are thinking about any public engagement activities or knowledge exchange project at some time, this would be an excellent way to build a foundation towards a successful project and would look very good as part of a funding application.
The two sessions offered this year are:
Tuesday 7 June 2018 - Introduction to Storytelling10:30 - 16:00 Treehouse, Berrick Saul Building, University of York
This is a 'taster' event, where Tim will talk about his approach to storytelling and challenge you to think about ways you might be able to use compelling storytelling to talk about your research.
Tuesday 26 July 2018 - Storytelling Workshop 13:00 - 16:00 Edward Boyle Library, University of Leeds
This is a more in-depth workshop where you will have a go at turning an aspect of your research into an engaging story, getting feedback from Tim and other participants on the day and (if you wish) having another go! Ideally you need to have attended the first session so that you have some background knowledge to bring along to this more practical workshop.
