Online sessions etiquette

Now that all seminars, workshops and events are taking place online, we would like to kindly ask you to follow an appropriate code of conduct.

Please ensure your microphone is muted upon your entry to an online meeting to minimise interruptions caused by background noise. You are very welcome to unmute yourselves at appropriate points during the sessions to discuss with presenters and other attendants.

Be kind, patient and understanding; this is absolutely essential during these challenging days.

Summer Research Intensive: Writing in/as Research | Monday 12 to Thursday 15 July 2021 |  c. 10:00-17:30 (UK time) each day

Open to all postgraduate researchers and staff

Online/at home event with asynchronous options

This ever-popular annual event is a creative and interactive space.

We invite you to join other participants as we gather around the shared topic of writing in/as research as a means to inspire and take forward your own projects.

Interrogating the notion and practice of writing, we expand the possibilities through critically creative talks, workshops and collaborative activities.

The intensive offers a generative environment to support your self-identified aims. As such you will have a good amount of time for your own research, whilst responding to provocations that offer new ways of thinking about, and undertaking, writing.

Guest speakers include:

Professor Maria Fusco, Chair in Interdisciplinary Writing at the University of Dundee, previously Director of Art Writing at Goldsmiths and is currently Visiting Professor at the University of Art & Design Offenbach am Main, Frankfurt. Her latest books are Legend of the Necessary Dreamer (2017) described by Chris Kraus as “a new classic of female philosophical fiction” and Give Up Art: Collected Critical Writings (2018) of which Lisa Robertson has said “Fusco’s scintillating mobility invites us to savour a new kind of critical empathy”.

Prof Jane Rendell, Professor of Critical Spatial Practice at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. Jane has introduced concepts of ‘critical spatial practice’ and ‘site-writing’ through her authored books: The Architecture of Psychoanalysis (2017), Silver (2016), Site-Writing (2010) and curates a website of situated dialogical reviews – Site-Reading Writing Quarterly.

We invite you to invest time in your own writing by making the commitment and holding the dates in your diary.

Documentation from the Summer Intensive 2020, can be accessed in MyLearning (log in with your MDX username and password).
