On 2 September 2009, from 9-5pm an event that aims to explore points of contact between the histories, cultures and peoples of Asia and Scotland will take place at the Institute for Advanced Studies, University of Strathclyde. To attend this free event, please e-mail your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event aims to bring arts and humanities researchers in Scotland together with partners from related disciplines and organisations explore contacts between Scottish and Asian cultures with a view to shaping future relationships. These points of contact could be in Asia or in Scotland, or within the wider Scottish and Asian diasporas.
The key questions are what shapes should future relations between Scotland and Asia take and how can arts and humanities researchers work with non-HEI partners in order to realise these?
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) are working together in a strategic partnership to explore potential for enhancing knowledge exchange in the arts and humanities in Scotland.
They are co-hosting an event that aims to bring arts and humanities researchers together with partners from related disciplines and organisations is taking place on 1 September, 9-5 pm, Surgeons Hall, Edinburgh. To attend this free event, please e-mail your details to email@example.com.
The idea behind the event is to explore how arts and humanities subjects can contribute to new perspectives on the experience of health and illness in Scotland and and new approaches to therapy and recovery in Scotland.
