On Thursday, 29 Jan., network members will enjoy presentations from various invited speakers, responding to a brief text taken from Vibrant Matters book by Jane Bennett. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Peta Hinton, currently Research Fellow at the Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry, and co-editor of New Materialisms. She is an interdisciplinary scholar, a political theorist, philosopher, and feminist, who will discuss Vibrant Matter in a way that frames questions about materialisms, philosophy and possible applications that open out in creative practice.
On 30 Jan., postgraduate students are warmly invited to attend a series of presentations by doctoral students from several universities, responded to by a panel of four senior academics, in which the extended concerns of Vibrant Matters are also considered across practice-based and place-based research.
