Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising a conference, workshop, ...


Interdisciplinary Perspectives Symposium with support from the AHRC Impact Accelerator Fund and NBC funding the theme of the symposium will examine people, placemaking and identity by presenting research being carried out across various disciplines. The word 'vernacularities' has been chosen as an inclusive term to embrace research cultures and heritage which are rooted in Ulster.
The symposium will showcase research currently being carried out by postgraduates, early career makers, and academics. It is hoped that this will be both a platform for research to be disseminated, and a forum for museum, arts and broadcasting representatives to find perspective collaboration and partnership opportunities.
