A showcase of work by Coventry artists, funded by the city’s universities and produced during lockdown, is now live for the public to view.
A showcase of work by Coventry artists, funded by the city’s universities and produced during lockdown, will launch online next week (Monday 5 October).
Research led by Professor Vicki Squire of PAIS is featured in Refugees: Forced to Flee - a major new exhibition at IWM London. The exhibition, which will run until 24 May 2021, includes an animated audio installation based on research by the Crossing the Mediterranean Sea by Boat project, led by Professor Squire with a team from Warwick, ELIAMEP Athens and University of Malta.
More than 500 people took part in the workshops, talks and activities organised by the University of Warwick for this year’s ESRC Festival of Social Science. University researchers took to Coventry and Warwickshire’s streets, bars and community centres to share insights from their work with enthusiastic and interested audiences. The events tackled topics from the nature of time itself and the puzzle of DNA to taxes and accents.
Nine free workshops and events are being hosted by Warwick researchers from 2 – 9 November 2019 as part of the UK-wide ESRC Festival of Social Science. Festival-goers can find out about how our understanding of DNA might shape the future of healthcare, share a refugee’s frightening journey across the Mediterranean by sea, dig deep into archive recordings of the Coventry accent, explore the impact of landmark legal cases through art, photography and theatre, or take a guided walk on Coventry’s wild side to explore the local environment.
