Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar

Description

The social sciences and the Humanities have long had an interdependent relationship with scientific study. Meaningful scientific inquiry relies upon pre-established humanistic knowledge, while the best humanities research is guided by scientific principles. In recent years technological advancement and innovation have sparked a resurgence in interdisciplinary research, largely corresponding with the rise of the digital age. This conference - hosted by the Strathclyde HaSS Graduate School - aims to celebrate these interdisciplinary relationships by sharing postgraduate research that highlights the ways in which science, technology, humanities, and social sciences interact with one other.
