Worlding Worlds Workshop (SGSAH Global Connects)

Activity: Other activity typesOther


This 2-day workshop explores the key concept of feminist worlding, through innovative world-building methodologies that interrogate sources of bias and inequalities in a range of encounters, to inform arts and humanities enquiry.

“it matters what stories tell stories, it matters what thoughts think thoughts, it matters what worlds world worlds” (Donna Haraway 2014)

To world is to make worlds; worlds world. In this workshop you will collaboratively construct a fictional or imaginary world through a series of exercises and discussions, a world of radical otherness. In the making of an imaginary world, you will be re-making the present world, seeking to challenge, unravel and potentially un-learn the existing ways of knowing and being in the world. Through an innovative feminist world-making practice, the structural and material underpinnings of bias and inequality will be revealed. The aim of this workshop is to explore material relations of being to thinking, or more specifically, to propose practices of making and living from which new or alternative ways of knowing can emerge.

This session will be of particular interest to Postgraduate, Masters and PhD students and practice-based researchers in all disciplines of the arts and humanities who undertake enquiry in feminist contexts, material cultures and creative practices.
