Steven High is Professor of History at the University of Concordia, Canada. He is an interdisciplinary oral and public historian with a strong interest in transnational approaches to working‐class studies, forced migration, community‐engaged research, oral history methodology and ethics, and living archives.

This lecture will draw on conversations with over thirty researchers and artists across multiple cultures and disciplines, to examines the ways in which oral historians, media producers, and theatre artists use art, stories, and participatory practices to engage creatively with their publics. As researchers are increasingly taking their research from the campus to the public arena, what are the ethics of, and expectations for, social impact? And how do new technologies, platforms, and methods challenging community‐engaged artists, academics, and media makers to rethink their approaches to collaboration.
