Public Engagement with the Arts & Humanities

I attended an NCCPE/AHRC event this week on public engagement with the Arts & Humanities, and heard some really interesting ways in which A&H researchers are engaging with the public, from comedy nights, through to iphone apps, and traditional media work.  Who knew that the UK had someone dedicated to the Public Understanding of Philosophy!  I was struck by some of the similar concerns which this community has with their scientific counterparts, but also by how there’s not the confidence in engagement that has been displayed by the science community.  Which is a shame as there are some really great stories to tell.  Hopefully that will now slowly begin to change though.
