We hold regular Doctoral Research Seminars & Progress Catch-Up Meetings for research colleagues and doctoral students in Blaasnigg  (Room A2.10/11), usually on every second week of the month on a Wednesday afternoon/evening at starting at around 3pm.

The 2019-2020 theme for the Metatechnicity Seminars is

indigeneity

 (/ɪnˌdɪdʒɪˈneɪɪti/)

Posthuman thinking is a relational activity that occurs by composing points of contact with a myriad of elements within the complex multiplicity of each subject and across multiple other subjects situated in the world. Thinking takes the form of cartographic renderings of embedded and embodied relational encounters (Braidotti, 2019, p. 123)

This years’ Metatechnicity seminar series builds upon the collective ambitions of the group crossing Science and Technology Studies, Ontological Design, and posthuman thinking to explore how we may ‘think’ in, through and with relations between human, non-human and environmental temporalities. To ‘know’ within such “meshworks” is to ‘know’ relative to; a knowing indigenous to the meshwork and often invisible in everyday experience.

If you would like to join us do please just ask and we will add you to the invitation list.
