Public Engagement at Manchester

Researchers in Residence Showcase, 16 June, Manchester Museum

We are inviting you to attend the Researchers in Residence Showcase.

The Researchers in Residence project is a pilot-scheme of funded internships for PhD students and Post-Doc Researchers, developed by UoM Graduate School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, artsmethods, and non-HE partners.

These placements will provide a way of conceptualising and developing collaborative work with non-HEI cultural partners – combining and reflecting upon mentoring, peer learning, researcher development, impact, knowledge exchange, project design, and employability.

Each of the selected institutions holds a wealth of archival and collections material which will benefit from researcher engagement. The projects developed would ideally harness the skills and research expertise of the student and contribute to the cultural institutions development. The projects might range from contributing to curatorial tasks to education and outreach work, from discrete research on a particular issue or the running of an event.

The event will showcase the projects undertaken in 2013-14 and will act as a forum for discussing wider issues surrounding research and engagement between Higher Education Institutions and cultural, heritage and charity organisations. The RinR project will run 2014-15 so your thoughts on how this should be structured will be very welcome.

Please see the attached programme for more details.
