Radical Notations Seminar Series

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Radical Notations is a public forum that brings together national and international scholars, curators, designers and thinkers to explore the relationship between literature, technology and design, and to question how these interactions shape cultural change. It extends conversations between the School of Literature, Language and Culture (LLC), Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) and other interested individuals/organisations. Looking to research in related fields, such as the history of art & architecture, anthropology, the history of science & technology, media studies, and the medical humanities, the series will ask: what creative and critical approaches to test, sign, sound, structure and self, have arisen in answer to ethical, social and political pressures of the age? How have developments in contemporary culture transformed the ways in which designers and writers contemplate past moments in the history of invention and communication? What is at stake for new forms of expression?
