This fall, Memorial University’s Office of Public Engagement will host People, Place and Public Engagement, a conference taking place October 25-27 at our stunning new location on historic Signal Hill. People, Place and Public Engagement is a conference that will explore how universities and the public, including communities, governments, industry, not-for-profits, and others, collaborate.

Who should submit?

We are accepting conference presentation proposals from academic and community participants, with a particular interest in submissions from university/community partnerships. We encourage participants from all stages of their careers and roles to consider submitting a proposal.

What themes should proposals consider?

Public engagement-related projects, including research and teaching & learning, the scholarship of public engagement, university-community collaborations of all kinds, community-based research and all other types of work that relate to the broad topic of university-community public engagement.

What format should I propose?

People, Place, and Public Engagement is open to both academic and community participants and we invite you to consider interesting, engaging, and accessible approaches to presenting your ideas.

Our programming committee is open to a broad range of presentation types, from traditional talks and panels, to more creative approaches including hands-on
workshops, artistic presentations, etc. We encourage you to consider how best to share your work.
