Association for Academic Outreach (AFAO) Annual Conference, co-hosted by University of East Anglia, at University of Warwick, Saturday April 27th 2019
This year’s conference seeks to advance critical reflections on national and international higher education outreach policy and practice and its implications for practitioners, academics, students and their communities. Papers are examining such questions as:
- What is the specific value and contribution of academics as ‘actors’ in outreach?
- How is academic outreach shaped by broader concerns shaping the higher education sector including massificiation, marketisation, globalisation and precarity?
- How can academic outreach be theorised or understood as part of academic career trajectories?
- How do questions of (in)equity and (dis)advantage emerge through the experiences of delivering, taking part in or researching outreach?
The organising team have collated the following list of abstracts
