An Introduction to Policy Engagement for Historians

This talk will be given by Dr Thomas Kelsey, the Humanities & Public Policy Officer for OPEN (the Oxford Policy Engagement Network). It will take place at the Faculty lecture theatre from 10-11.15am on 17 April, and is open to all Faculty members. 

Tom's talk will cover the following topics:

  • Why do policy engagement?
  • What the policy world looks like
  • How to convert your research into policy outputs

Tom will also share his own experiences working in policy engagement as an early career historian; as well as providing information about the resources and training that historians at the Faculty and in the local area can access via the OPEN Network and the new Community History Hub. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and briefly chat with Tom one-to-one on the day.
