Activist Archives and Mr Seel's Garden
16th June 2015
12:00 – 17:00
Andrew Grant lecture Theatre, 2.13 Evolution House, West Port, Edinburgh
The final event in a series of workshops run by the Edinburgh Environmental Humanities Network and sponsored by IAD and ECA.
The interdisciplinary nature of the Environmental Humanities calls for multiple kinds of collaboration, including teams from multiple research areas, researchers working with practitioners and humans working with non-humans. At the same time, however, the research area has arisen within a context where 'collaboration' is often experienced as an imperative imposed by funders, universities and governments. In this workshop then we will seek to explore the fraught nature of collaboration and what benefits or drawbacks it might have for those engaged in environmental research from an arts and humanities perspective.
The event will include a series of reflections from collaborative pairs who will explore the why, how and how well, of their various projects.
In the spirit of the workshop we'll start with a potluck lunch before moving into the discussions. So please bring a dish to share.
