Funding and Partners

Our conference is being part-funded by the AHRC through a Student-Led Collaborative Skills Award on the theme of partnership working including public engagement.  This funding strand is to support postgraduate students to engage effectively with collaborators outside of academia, including community groups and the public, private and third sectors.

We are very grateful to the AHRC for their support.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Leicester Arts & Museums Service to develop and plan our conference and the additional collaborative activity. We are also grateful for the support of Ashgate publishers who have kindly contributed to the opening reception.
