3rd Annual Imagine Conference in Huddersfield

It was the 3rd Annual Imagine Conference on Wednesday 9 September 2015 and this time it was Huddersfield’s turn to be the host. The conference title was ‘Doing research together across communities and universities’ and delegates (academics and community partners) were from the four Imagine work packages (social, historical, cultural and democratic). Keynote speakers were Ruth Levitas talking about Utopia as Method and Eric Lassiter and Beth Campbell talking about Collaborative Ethnography. Each work package offered two workshops. Ben Kyneswood and Jason Tilley gave a workshop on ‘How austerity affects co-production’  – offering their perspectives on work in Coventry for WP2. We also gave a workshop, entitled ‘Whose Community? Whose History? issues and challenges in doing community-based historical research’. This involved Sarah Banks, Andrea Armstrong and Vincent Chu from Durham University and Yvonne Hall (speaking about the Cedarwood Trust Imagine NE project), Ruth Taylor (Pendower Good Neighbour Project in Benwell) and Kath Smith (Remembering the Past, Resourcing the Future).
