Following the launch of the Centre for MaterialThinking, this special collaborative event delves deeper into the subject of materiality and explores it from different disciplinary perspectives. Several academics from across FASS will discuss what the concept of ‘material thinking’ means to them in terms of both creative practice and critical thought. What are material methods and how can we work with the material world to create new intellectual and ethical approaches?
