Valuing our Assets: Multidisciplinary Methods, Myths and Meaning

This event is on 18 September 2019 10:00am

As members of the MARCH Network, Dr Kaye Richards (based in Faculty of Education, Health and Community at LJMU) and the ICC’s Head of Research and AHRC Leadership Fellow Kerry Wilson, are co-hosting an event on 18 September 2019, for fellow members of the network’s special interest group (SIG) on Interdisciplinary Research Methods.

The MARCH Network is one of 8 national networks funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) as part of the 2018 Cross-Council Mental Health Plus call, to further research into mental health. MARCH focuses on social, cultural and community assets – which includes the arts, culture, heritage sites, libraries, green spaces, community centres, social clubs, community associations and volunteer groups – and the role they play in enhancing public mental health and wellbeing, preventing mental illness, and supporting those living with mental health conditions.

The main objectives of the event – Valuing our Assets:  Multidisciplinary Methods, Myths and Meaning – are to:

  • stimulate MARCH activity in the North West region including expanding SIG membership;
  • develop interdisciplinary methodological practice within and across the network;
  • and to contribute to the development of a major SIG output in 2020 (e.g. conference and journal special issue).
