We, Dr Chris Jeffs (University of Oxford, Department of Zoology) and Franziska Kohlt (University of Oxford, Brasenose College), are conducting research into the practicalities of delivering cross-disciplinary public engagement events and activities linking the humanities-sciences.
Your contribution will help us produce resources that encourage aspiring organisers and contributors to deliver successful public engagement activities with a positive impact. We aim to investigate, among other questions: - What factors make for a successful / unsuccessful cross-curricular collaboration? - How can the ‘impact’ of such activities be measured?- What can humanities scholars, scientists, engagement professionals, venue hosts and funders ‘get out of each other’?
We encourage you to submit examples of your involvement in cross-curricular public engagement activities (e.g. exhibitions / public lectures / workshops / videos / articles etc.). We welcome examples involving successful ‘impact’ and/or significant problems in delivery.
We thank you for your contributions.
