 Impacting publics: striking a blow or walking together?

 Tuesday, 19 February 2013, 14:00 – 16:00

Michael Young Building, Room 1&2, Ground Floor, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA

Outline: “The University is just one site where the idea of public good is under threat from marketisation and shallow audit rather than deep accountability. My starting point is alignment between Universities and a range of wider publics and organisations in the context of recession and austerity. Reflecting on different responses to the impact agenda, I suggest that the particular form of impact being measured is reproducing longer-standing power/knowledge hierarchies. I consider some alternative framings and practices of impact (with) publics.”
