Over the next two years, Praxis will host four large international workshops (Nexus Events) and a series of one-day Learning Events.
The Nexus Events are thematically organised workshops that aim to bring together global partners, to create synergies between projects, to foster innovative and interdisciplinary collaboration, and to discuss collective learning for global challenges. The four Nexus events are planned on the themes of: Heritage (February 2020), Conflict and Displacement (October 2020), Resilience (February 2021), and Health (October 2021). These themes showcase the leading role AHRC has played is fostering innovative research that crosses interdisciplinary boundaries, essential to addressing the full complexity of global challenges.
Learning Events are smaller workshops, aimed at UK researchers, that address issues that arise within GCRF projects. The aim of the workshops is to create resources that will be of support to other GCRF projects; for example, podcasts, methodological toolkits, resource maps, etc. Praxis is also open to offering funding and logistical support to projects and/or individuals who have a clear conceptual idea of a Learning Event they are interested in hosting themselves (provided it contributes to the overall aims of Praxis).
We are currently reaching out to GCRF– projects that engage Arts and Humanities researchers, themes or approaches—especially where these intersect with other disciplines. If you think this could be you, please get in touch with Dr. Deena Dajani at firstname.lastname@example.org—we look forward to hearing from you!
