On Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd July we'll be gathering some creative thinkers and scholars, from near and far and across disciplines, to interrogate intersections between 'technology', 'affect', and 'memory'.
On Day 1 (at Flinders in the City) we have 'lightning talks' (10 mins each with quick responses from peers) followed by a collaborative paper/slam/workshop. We'll be asking people to write down three pivotal concepts (that underpin our theme) that we will then collate. We'll choose the top 3 or 4, make groups of 3 or 4... then devise an abstract/outline for a collaborative article.
For those keen on extending their brains into after-hours there is also opportunity to attend a live multi-media performance 'Walter Benjamin: A life in translation' at Hartley Playhouse, Uni SA, Magill Campus.
On Day 2 (at Flinders in Bedford Park) we have a line up of longer presentations. Participants will have read each others' 3000 word drafts with a view to offering more thorough and nuanced feedback. Our aim is to develop 6-8 of the papers from this day into a journal special issue.
Even if you haven't submitted an abstract for either day we're happy to have you along! Download the embedded Day 1 & 2 overviews for details.
