Delighted to be participating as a panel speaker at the upcoming GSI Postgraduate and Early Career Research Network event: ‘Communicating Research in Our Environment’.

This event will draw together a range of experts and civically engaged researchers, to discuss ways in which we can creatively disseminate and communicate our research both within and beyond the academy. In the context of increasing emphasis on socially impactful research, innovations in dissemination to include a diverse range of civic society and governance actors is essential for progressive research. Come along to this event to learn how you can increase the impact of your research in academic and non-academic spheres. A description of the event and direction to registration is outlined below.


Wondering how to present your research?

Do you want to engage people in your research in new ways?

Communicating Research in Our Environment: Innovating research for impact to the academy and beyond is a one-day workshop to help you develop strategies to engage and translate your research to new audiences.

The workshop draws together early career scholars with successful researchers to discuss strategies, opportunities and challenges for using innovative ways to communicate research.

  • Lead by invited established colleagues in the environmental disciplines, an open roundtable discussion will discuss their approaches to successful and innovative practices of public communication. This will occur in a rapid and engaging world cafe setting; Small groups (8-10 people) will spend 30 minutes with one speaker to discuss topics like podcasting, photography, protests, film-making, etc.
  • An afternoon panel discussion will facilitate early career and postgraduate students to discuss inter/trans/multidisciplinary applications of their work such as visual methods, storytelling, media-engagement, and policy translation.
  • A practical will involve an in-depth discussion of using visual methods as a part of participatory methods, where graphic art becomes as much of the research process and as one of its outputs.
