Space 7 Culture Lab, Newcastle University
Bringing together researchers from diverse subject areas, this interdisciplinary half-day event will explore a number of theories and constructions of ‘non-place’, ranging from the abandoned and the lost, to the temporal and digitally mediated, to the nonexistent and the re-imagined.
Featuring talks from Luke Bennett (Sheffield Hallam), Prof. Alastair Bonnett (Social Geography), Dr. James Ash (Media and Cultural Studies) and Dr. Matthew Flintham (Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence), with further speakers to be confirmed shortly, we now welcome abstracts from early career researchers and research students at Newcastle University who would like to take part [e.g. by giving a paper, running an activity, performing or presenting work in progress for no more then 20 minutes].
Abstracts should be no more than 200 words and should be sent to Emma Coffield (email@example.com) or Carolyn Gibbeson (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 24th November.
