Recording of the Knowledge Exchange webinar ‘Rethinking Knowledge Exchange within the Humanities’
HERA final webinar of the series on Tuesday 6th July, was hosted and chaired by our Knowledge Exchange and Impact Fellows Prof. Joanna Sofear and Prof. Tony Whyton, joined by their colleague Craig Hamilton and Public Spaces projects: BESTROM, Intoxicating Spaces, CEMI, SciConf and NITE.
The discussion focused on the models of Knowledge Exchange within the HERA programme and the challenges of working with non-academic partners in a COVID-19 context.
Knowledge Exchange (KE) is a dynamic, reciprocal process whereby researchers and external organisations come together to exchange ideas, data, experiences and expertise in order to create new knowledge for mutual benefit. It involves partnership and collaboration in research.
This webinar reflects on different types of Knowledge Exchange within the HERA Joint Research Programme and explores the challenges of working with non-academic partners in a COVID-19 context. The event will feature a presentation that draws on 10 years of the HERA JRP programme to interrogate existing Models of KE as applied to the Arts and Humanities. This will be followed by a series of short case studies from HERA Public Spaces projects and a discussion focused on the main theme of ‘Rethinking Knowledge Exchange within the Humanities.’
