Thursday 6th February 2020 | 12:00 – 14:00 | G04, 43 Gordon Square
The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research (BISR) and the Birkbeck Social Science Methodology (BSSM) Network would like you to join us for research networking social on Thursday 6th February 2020.
This social is an opportunity for Birkbeck staff and researchers to meet up and share ideas informally over lunch. The event aims to promote discussion and collaboration, and will allow colleagues to share their own research, join or establish research groups, and learn more about the possible funding schemes available to support them.
We will have a few short talks followed by an opportunity to chat and network with colleagues.
Prof Felicity Callard will introduce the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research (BISR) and our exciting new Experimental Collective initiative, which is designed to support new interdisciplinary collaborations across the College which in some way address ‘the social.’ The deadline to apply for funding for this initiative is Friday 28th February, so please do ask on the day if you have any queries for us.
Dr Andi Fugard will introduce the Birkbeck Social Science Methodology (BSSM), which aims to encourage creative developments in methodology by bringing people together from across the social sciences, arts, and humanities. Dr Lina Džuverović will introduce the Curatorial Research Lab, a two-term initiative based in the Peltz Gallery, established to foreground curatorial research activity across Birkbeck’s School of Arts and associated research communities. Finally, we will hear about public engagement with research from Dr Belinda Brooks-Gordon, winner of the 2018 Birkbeck Public Engagement Award for Transforming Culture, which recognises exemplary research engagement activities which have aimed to stimulate change within our culture or society.
If you have an initiative or research project you would like to introduce to the group, please do let us know, and we’d be happy to add your name to our list of speakers.
Places are limited, so please RSVP to email@example.com to reserve a seat. Lunch will be provided – do let us know when booking if you have any allergies, dietary or access requirements.
