Research themes workshops
The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is organising a series of workshops, hosted by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH)
Cultural Heritage 6 December 2019, 0930-1230 hours
What role does the past play in the present? How do we, in the present, exercise sovereignty over the past, and operationalise it to our own ends? Research in this area may cover the ethics and aesthetics of curation and conservation, but also address less tractable problems such as restitutions and reparations.
Identities and Inequalities, 9 December 2019, 0930-1230 hours
How does and can our research address identity-based inequalities (such as those relating to gender, race, socioeconomic status or physical ability) and how might we research the points of intersection between them?
Childhood and Youth: 9 December 2019, 1330-1630 hours
Research in this area may relate to education per se, but also to developmental psychology, and/or children’s rights within families, and in relation to health and other amenities.
Health and Wellbeing: 12 December 2019, 1330-1630 hours
How does and can our research address issues surrounding mental health? How can and does it provide insights about the engagements between our environment and wellbeing? How can and do we explore new technologies and systems to support better health and wellbeing in the future?
