The Department’s Heritage & Homelessness Project has been shortlisted for the Times Higher Education 2012 Awards for Widening Participation Initiative of the Year. This is one of three University of York entries on the various shortlists. Pioneered by Rachael Kiddey and John Schofield, the project is becoming increasingly participatory. It now involves people in the Department at all levels, with undergraduate students running some activities themselves. Close collaborators include the ArcLight homeless charity, and now also other higher education institutions and homeless communities in the US and Australia.
The winners will be announced at a dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, on Thursday 29 November.
