2012 Creating Publics Keynote Lecture Series

Looking forward to this: on 26 March 2012 not only will we be publicly launching the Creating Publics project but this event will also feature the first of a series of three keynote lectures by leading social scientists. I am delighted to announce that the first of these lectures will be delivered by Larry Grossberg (University of North Carolina, editor of the journal Cultural Studies) on 26 March; Rachel Pain (University of Durham, Co-director Centre for Social Justice and Community Action) will deliver the second lecture on 16 May; and, the third features John Holmwood (University of Nottingham and Campaign for the Public University) on 28 June. Each of these public events will offer a different perspective on what is at stake in the drive for publicly engaging social science research. As a whole, the series will therefore be an opportunity to reflect collectively on the contemporary and possible future relationship between social science research and public life. More details soon.
