This year’s Research Development Festival programme continued the exploration of the broad theme initiated last year of pushing the boundaries of knowledge and research. The main festival day on Monday, 13 July provided a representative flavour of the exciting research being developed in the College, across disciplines, experiences, and methodologies. We were pleased to welcome David Cotterrell, Professor of Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University as the keynote speaker. The presentations can be viewed below.
