Humanities and Sciences collaborations
(27 February 2015)
Academic staff from across The Faculty of Humanities are involved in several creative projects as part of celebrations to mark Manchester being European City of Science in 2016.
To celebrate the prestigious title, the University is funding nine projects which will take place throughout 2015 with live performances, events and exhibitions.
Among the Humanities academics is Dr Cordelia Warr, from the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, who will be working alongside Professor Tony Freemont from the Medical School and Dr Sian Bonnel from Falmouth University.
The project will see students ‘re-enacting’ images from the Medical Collection at the John Rylands Library. Ian McGuire, from the Centre for New Writing, will be taking part in workshops which will use creative interactions to support the loss of sense of identity often felt by stroke survivors.
Details of all projects can be found on the Social Responsibility website.
The University has an excellent record of collaborations and partnerships between the sciences and the arts. This has included teaching between the four Faculties, research projects between colleagues or with outside organisations and large-scale public engagement events.
