The Afterlife of Heritage Research Project is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and will be providing a number of training and development workshops and opportunities which will enable postgraduate research students and early career researchers from across the Humanities to identify, understand and ‘translate’ the benefits of their research into ‘real-life’ contexts of the heritage and cultural sectors.
Those participating in the project will work closely with cultural partners. There are three strands within the programme: (1) research to profession, (2) research to public and (3) research to business. The project is designed to span various disciplines within the arts, social sciences and humanities and is lead by the Institute for Cultural Practices at The University of Manchester and the School of Art & Design at The University of Salford, in collaboration with artsmethods@manchester.
In order to plan the programme, we are looking for 15 participants (made up of PGRs and ECRs) from within the Faculty of Humanities (University of Manchester) and the School of Art & Design (University of Salford) to take part in a User Group on Thursday 14th June from 12-2pm in Samuel Alexander building, room A202 (Number 67 on the map: http://documents.manchester.ac.uk/display.aspx?DocID=6507)
(lunch and refreshments will be provided). This is an ideal opportunity to find out how to participate in the programme. The purpose of the User Group will be to share knowledge and ideas for events/workshops and to discuss how best to develop the programme for PGRs and ECRs in the future.
