HumSci Workshop for PhDs and ECRs – Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th May 2013.
Is it possible to think about the connections between the sciences and humanities which goes beyond science communication (ie how can the ‘soft skills’ of the humanities be used to communicate the ‘hard results’ of science) or the History of Science, and which doesn’t get distracted by ‘The Two Cultures’ discussion?
The idea of the HumSci workshop, funded by the AHRC, is to promote genuine reciprocity between the two disciplines by bringing together PhD students and Early Career Researchers from both the sciences and the humanities to think through issues of method, creativity and uncertainty in research, as well as publishing and communication. Led by expert panels, talking through the similarities and differences in the disciplines will help us critically reflect on the practices of our own discipline, as well as creating fresh research agendas. Have a look at the provisional programme to get more of an idea of how this discussion will be structured, and please pass these details on to anyone you think might be interested.
Deadline for applications: (Midnight) Friday 5th April 2013
