Festival of Research

We all contribute to research - join the celebration

25 June to 20 July 2018

About the festival

Our month-long programme will showcase the research being carried out across the University of Salford, with a focus week taking place between 2 - 6 July at MediaCityUK where you can get involved with some of our flagship events.

The festival will bring together academics, students, industry and the public to discuss and develop the future research strategy. At the heart of the festival is the Postgraduate Research flagship conference SPARC, where festival goers can enjoy performances, music, family friendly fun and opportunities to meet with students and staff, share research interests and experiences.

The Purple Tent

As part of the festival this year, we will be showcasing a series of specially selected events that follow a ‘purple theme’ and hosted as part of our ‘purple tent’. Expect popular music and performances associated with the colour purple, work with researchers and organisations to support dementia and link in with the anniversary of the suffragette movement.

Café Research

Join us at our Café Research pop-up to discuss all things research over a coffee or cocktail! Our pop-up will make an appearance at our Peel Park campus and at partner outlets in central Manchester throughout the duration of the Festival.

Rewilding the mind? An eco-poetic ramble

Starting from the front entrance of Peel Building, this guided walk around Peel Park, the Meadows, and the David-Lewis Playing field will engage sensory and emotional experiences of place to explore how we feel about “urban wildness”. In particular, we will investigate how we understand and inhabit the “edgelands” where the natural and urban environments interact. As we walk we will pay close attention to the different species sharing our space, and we will pause at various points to generate collective poems about our feelings as we inhabit different states of wildness. No prior poetic experience is necessary – all that’s needed are your responses to simple questions about what you like or dislike. As well as being a fun and creative activity, we will co-construct a piece of practice-based research, which uses poetic knowledge to capture complex responses to environmental experiences.

Urban Wildness is a concept approached in often distinct ways by practitioners of different disciplines. Combining these approaches generate novel insights. Today we bring together the work of Ursula Hurley and Philip James, a creative writer and an ecologist, to showcase how this particular interface generates new ways of thinking within both disciplines and how they may be applied in a research programme on urban re-wilding.  

Practicalities: the walk will last approximately 90 minutes. Please dress for the Salford weather, and be prepared to encounter long grass!
