Arts and Humanities Futures: Series 2, Event 1

This event, the first of five in 2022, features discussion with between University of Leeds Researchers, Alice Owen and Stephen Dobson.

In 2021, the Arts and Humanities Futures podcast and event series focused just on researchers in the arts and humanities. For 2022, we have stretched beyond our disciplinary boundaries to open up thought-provoking conversations that we hope will stimulate reflection in the arts and humanities community and beyond.

This first event will feature a conversation between Dr Alice Owen (School of Earth and Environment) and Dr Stephen Dobson (School of Performance and Cultural Industries).

The recent years have brought extraordinary and ongoing challenges to societies and cultures, as well as bringing long-standing crises and predicaments to the foreground in new ways. This series of curated conversations brings together researchers from different backgrounds, disciplines and career stages to stimulate conversation about how research communities might respond to these challenges – and about the futures we want to imagine and realise.

At each online event, one of the pre-recorded conversations will be aired; before the Chair opens up to the floor for discussion. Following each event, the conversation will be made available as a podcast episode, which can be downloaded at any time.

Registration for this event is via Eventbrite. it is open to people outside the University of Leeds and participation is free.
