Abstract

With a focus on ten notable Australians, including Nobel Laureates Professor Barry Marshall and Professor Brian Schmidt, former Chief Scientist, Professor Ian Chubb, and Parliamentarian, the Honourable Linda Burney, The Power of Conferences explores the deep and lasting impact of conferences on the development and success of Australian luminaries.Each chapter features a reflection from a leader in Australian academia, politics, or community service, on the significant effects conferences have had on their personal and professional achievements.From chance encounters that result in the cultivation of new networks and collaborations to innovation and research breakthroughs, these leaders describe the conferences that have enabled them and others to go on to create real and lasting social change.

Abstract

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. Engagement with non-academic groups and actors – such as policy-makers, industry, charities and activist groups, communities, and the public – in the co-production of knowledge and real-world impact is increasingly important in academic research. Drawing on empirical research, interdisciplinary methodologies, and broad international perspectives, this collection offers a critical examination of the liminal space of interactions between policy and research as spaces of difference and engagement, showing them to be far from apolitical.

Abstract

The dynamic processes of knowledge production in archaeology and elsewhere in the humanities and social sciences are increasingly viewed as the collaborative effort of groups, clusters and communities of researchers rather than the isolated work of so-called ‘instrumental’ actors. Shifting focus from the individual scholar to the wider social contexts of her work and the dynamic creative processes she participates in, this volume critically examines the importance of informal networks and conversation in the creation of knowledge about the past. Engaging with theoretical approaches such as the sociology and geographies of knowledge and Actor-Network Theory (ANT), and using examples taken from different archaeologies in Europe and North America from the seventeenth to the mid-twentieth century, the book caters to a wide readership, ranging from students of archaeology, anthropology, classics and science studies to the general reader.
