Transmissions: Critical tactics for making and communicating research
What does your research sound like? Do you yell or whisper it? How does it feel to wear it, close to the skin? Can you meter its rhythm? What games does it call for? Do you perform it? How do modes of making and communicating inform your practice, shape your stories and engage your audience?
Please join us for a seminar based on the newly published MIT Press book Transmissions: Critical Tactics for Making and Communicating Research, edited by Kat Jungnickel. In total the collection features work by 15 interdisciplinary authors that in different ways put focus on transmissions, "the tactical combination of making (how theory, methods, and data give shape to research) and communicating (how we show, share, and entangles others in it)." It is the research moment where invention meets dissemination.
During the seminar we will show and tell stories of moments of transmissions from our own research – including poetry, costumes, interactive machines, manuals and living with. Please bring your own examples or thoughts on the ways in which we can show, share and involve others in research.
Speakers: Kat Jungnickel (Goldsmiths University, London), Laura Watts (University of Edinburgh), Åsa Ståhl (Linnaeus University) and Kristina Lindström (Malmö University).
