At the Intersection of Uneven Terrain: Activism and Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences

We aim to highlight the work that both our Graduate Researchers (HDRs) and academic staff do or have done to engage their research with real lives and contexts. In this session, we want to explore ways in which research can be a platform for activism and impact, and perhaps to inspire researchers who are interested in developing research engagement in their disciplines. The session will articulate around three distinct but interconnected panels: 1) translating knowledges, 2) community-based knowledge exchanges, and 3) media and institutional activism. At the end of the session, floor will be provided for a broader conversation between the panellists and attendees of the session about the links between activism and research in HUSS disciplines.

Prize Ceremony and Conference Close - 4.15pm

The HUSS Graduate Researcher Prizes are designed to recognise and celebrate the achievements of HDR candidates and their contributions to activities. Each year the School offers two prizes to graduate researchers in the arenas of public engagement and research outputs.
