LibFocus Post: Universities, Research and Public Engagement

I have a guest post on the LibFocus blog to accompany my exhibition ‘Journeys of Belief and Belonging: modern Irish pilgrimage‘. I discuss the topic of ‘Universities, Research and Public Engagement‘ by highlighting the importance of researchers sharing their work with the general public and having conversations about it.

Public engagement is “the idea that researchers need to communicate their work not only to others in their field – usually through peer-reviewed journal articles and conference presentations – but also to a broader range of audiences.” It is an important part of modern research agendas, but can does not always receive the support and acknowledgment it deserves. You can read more in the blog post.
