Public engagement is more important than ever to ensure that the impact of research goes beyond academia, and that citizens are actively involved rather than simply informed.
The DHA Praxis project team presents the fifth roundtable in a series of events exploring and interrogating practices of interdisciplinary research. On this occasion, three University-led initiatives of public participation in the arts and humanities will be discussed.
Daniel Mutibwa, University of Leeds, will focus on Harnessing Digital Cultural Heritage Collection Content through Community/Institutional Partnerships. Dominic Price, University of Nottingham, will present ArtMaps, a crowdsourcing project developed in collaboration with Tate. Kate Pullinger, University of Bath SpA, will introduce 'Letter to an Unknown Soldier', a digital war memorial to which 22,000 people contributed letters.
