This website focusses on how Arts and Humanities academics engage with the wider public, particularly communities and practitioners. In general terms, it aims to:
- Be a platform to initiate ‘dialogue’ around engagement at Cardiff University and beyond.
- Promote a better understanding of engagement rooted in the realities of academic life (see Case Studies section).
More specifically, this resource is designed to support academics in:
- Developing and maintaining relationships with the wider public.
- Funding, designing, delivering, and evaluating a broad range of engagement and impact activities.
We acknowledge that many support resources for engagement already exist (e.g. see resources section). Our approach is therefore reflexive which is why, for example, we use real life examples of best practice (see Case Studies with Cardiff academics across Arts and Humanities schools).
This interactive sitemap will give you a visual overview of the website. Please use the tabs above to navigate around the site.
This website is the outcome of two Research Associate posts held by Dr Clyde Ancarno (Cardiff School of History, Archaeology and Religion) and Dr Jonathan Cable (Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies) and funded by the AHRC Cultural Engagement fund.
We would like to thank Bruce Etherington, James Vilares, Prof Jenny Kitzinger, Prof Keir Waddington, Dr Jacqui Mulville and Dr Dave Wyatt for their ongoing support. We would also like to thank all the people who have, formally or informally, contributed to the development of the content of this website. These include academics within and out Cardiff University, but also Cardiff Support Staff, partner organisations, community members and members of the general public.
