Work in Progress Seminars

This year we are introducing a new format for our ICCHS work-in-progress events. As our research has developed over recent years a number of common themes and clusters have started to emerge, particularly around questions of: a) cultural heritage, health and wellbeing and b) cultural heritage, participation and coproduction. This reflects wider trends in the field, both towards larger-scale, collaborative and interdisciplinary research projects generally and also specifically around these topics.

In recognition of this we have organised panel discussions along these themes where researchers (both staff and doctoral) working on these themes will each speak for approximately 10 minutes in the aim of generating wider cross-project insights and exchanges. As the name suggests these sessions present research work as it is happening and developing so audience feedback is welcome. These events are open to all and suggestions for future themed panels are also welcome as are individual work-in-progress presentations.
