Conference: DPR12

Discourse Power Resistance: Impact

2–4 April 2012 – Plymouth University, UK

The conference considers what ‘Impact’ means for us, our work, our understandings, and future developments. Governments, international agencies, funding bodies and policy-makers increasingly use this term. What does it mean?

The social sciences, creative arts, education, and humanities are currently under attack on a global scale as funding is concentrated on STEM-related subjects; but the threatened fields of scholarship are themselves evolving new ways of thinking and practice and new sites and methods of inquiry.

Practitioners and academics in the threatened areas are responding to the situation with vitality and determination: experimental, adventurous, playful, but serious in redefining boundaries and finding new ways forward. DPR 12 maps these emerging knowledge regimes, their impacts, the imagined futures they enable and the implications for practice, research, learning, and teaching.

The conference explores the potential impact on each other of the creative arts and social sciences in terms of theory and practice. All conference streams are designed to encourage contributions from across the creative arts, social sciences, and humanities. Click here for details.
