Public sociology and the role of the researcher: engagement, communication and academic activism

A BSA Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher Regional event

Wednesday 29 March 2017, Queens Building, De Montfort University

What is the role of the researcher outside the academy? This event invites Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers to innovate and critically reflect on three related areas of public sociology: academic activism, public engagement, and participation and co-production. It encourages researchers to articulate and address diverse challenges, such as neutrality, networking, and whether activism can be considered a form of public engagement.
This event includes a keynote lecture from distinguished speaker Dr Mark Carrigan, Digital Fellow, The Sociological Review, presentations by invited speakers, a film created using participatory methods, a participatory session, and the chance to network and discuss work with fellow researchers.

There are two opportunities for participants to present: a five-minute PechaKucha presentation and/or a poster presentation, with a small prize for the best presentation and the best poster.

Find out how to take part and book your place on the BSA website.
