Cultural Value: Weighing up Arts and Humanities Teaching, Research and Practice

This event seeks to bring together scholars from the different schools represented by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities to share research that intersects with the theme of cultural value (in the broadest possible terms).

In the fast-changing landscape of UK higher education, the value or perceived value, of arts and humanities research and teaching is constantly under question. From the strictures of the REF to the impending demands of the TEF, quantifying and defending the value of work in this area is an ever more dominant part of our job description. Arts practitioners face similar challenges as they are asked to justify the impact of their projects and, in an age of austerity and funding cuts, are increasingly required to define their creative practice in relation to the interests of potential sources of income. Cultural value is one way in which researchers, educators and practitioners alike seek to justify their work and quantify its impact.
