The first think tank of the new academic year – and the first meeting of the network under its new name – will be held on Thursday 22nd November at the University of Manchester. The theme for this event is “Methodological Training in the ASH Disciplines“.
A full programme and further details of the venue are available on the “Think Tanks” pages of this blog. If you would like to attend, please send us an email either to the usual firstname.lastname@example.org address, or to Dr Emily McIntosh (email@example.com), who will be hosting this month’s event.
As of October, the rather inelegant “ASHPIT” has been replaced by our lovely new name, SHARE, which stands for the Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts Researcher Education network.
Over the coming months we will be re-launching a newly improved and extended offering of online resources to support the ongoing work of the newly-branded network. We are also in the process of changing our email address and will notify you of that change in due course; in the meantime please continue to use firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to contact us
The sixth and – for this year at least – final ASHPIT Think Tank will be held on Tuesday 24th July at the University of Manchester. The earlier parts of that day will run along very similar lines to previous think tanks, this time focussing on benefits, challenges, and methods of working internationally. As usual, we are keen to showcase examples of current good practice in this area and welcome proposals to present case studies of any of your own work relating to these themes. These might, for instance, highlight examples of successful relationships with HEIs in other countries, study-abroad schemes, or international research collaborations. If you would like to present a case study of your work in these or any other relevant fields please send a summary of your project to us as email@example.com
We will be using the afternoon sessions of this event slightly differently from previous Think Tanks, inasmuch as that we hope to use that time to plan for the future of the ASHPIT project. In particular, we would like to put together a steering group to provide the ASHPIT management team with its insights into how best we might sustain both the viability and the utility of the UK-wide network of academic staff and researcher developers who have been part of the project since 2010.
To register for the event, please send an email expressing your interest in it to firstname.lastname@example.org
The next ASHPIT event on Monday 28th May (which, contrary to several sources, is NOT a Bank Holiday!) will be held in the University of Oxford’s Humanities Division, Hooke Building, Parks Road, OX1 3PR. This is the building to the left of the Natural History Museum (as you face the museum); a map showing the venue is available here.
