Public Knowledge Symposium
Public Knowledge: Generating and Assessing Research with Impact across the Humanities, Social Sciences and the Creative Arts
A Symposium in the Humanities Research Centre, ANU
Understanding research impact is now a priority for scholars in Australian universities, since the Australian Research Council is committed to assessing the public outcomes of university research. What will the assessment of research impact look like? And how might researchers approach research projects with integrity, such that their research is both intellectually rigorous and legible to an audience beyond their disciplines?
This symposium brings researchers from the UK with experience assessing and writing impact case studies to the ANU to discuss how research with impact has been produced and measured in England, and how Australian researchers can best position themselves to communicate their research to the public. Speakers include Professor Ann Heilmann, Professor Maria Delgado and Professor Malcolm Gillies AM.
