The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories identifies and develops its research activities in relation to the social needs and interests of a wide range of stakeholders, including communities and social groups, artists, writers and other creative practitioners, museum and heritage professionals, and community and political activists. Our modes of social engagement are evidenced both in the varied constituencies that take part in our events, as speakers, delegates, and audiences; and in the partnerships and collaborative relationships with organisations and groups outside the academy that we enter into in organising these events, supporting their work through training sessions and workshops, making applications for funding, and designing our research projects in ways that create impact.
Social engagement has always been a key aspect of the work of CMNH, putting us in a strong position to develop successful impact case studies for REF assessment cycles in each of our main Research Areas.
CMNH has worked in partnership or has collaborative links outside the academy with the following organisations – including community groups, civil-society organisations, political groups, arts and creative media groups, archives, museums, heritage organisations, memorial organisations, peace-building NGOs, professional organisations, and others – in ways that further social engagement and public impact.
