Wednesday 23 November at 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm
Building on our (de)Bordering collaboration, Brigstow and MMB have launched a new joint initiative, Seasons and Cycles. This will start conversations that explore connections between plant, animal and human movements/migrations and develop research partnerships between scientists, social scientists and the arts and humanities. Activities will take the (de)Bordering plot as a literal and metaphorical starting point, beginning with Autumn Composting.
Autumn Composting is a chance to think about change and transformation at the turning point of the seasons (both solar and academic). What do we want to throw away? To keep? To transform? Participants will assemble to process, recycle and de-compose the rich material of their disciplines and past projects and transform them into nutritious organic matter to develop deeper understandings of other disciplines and potential collaborations. Paul Hurley will be guiding us through this moment of reflection.
For those of you not aware, (de)Bordering is a joint project between Brigstow and MMB. The plots have already hosted rich and varied conversations around the politics of human migration and environmentalism, but we would now love to open up the spaces for other conversations to develop interdisciplinary activities.
Applications close at 12 noon on Wednesday 16 November.
The location of the (de)Bordering plot is here.
