Workshop details

– Prior to the workshop participants are asked to produce a 2000 word position paper, and respond online to other participants.
– The workshop itself will unfold over three days in Cambridge with presentations, discussions, and practical exercises. A further day at transmediale will prepare materials for public dissemination.
– After the workshop in Cambridge and as a consequence of peer feedback, participants will be asked to reduce their texts from 2000 words towards a shorter version for publication at the festival, alongside a further public presentation.
– In addition, participants will be invited to contribute longer academic papers (of 4000 words) to the associated peer-reviewed open access online journal APRJA_.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for emerging researchers to enter into speculation, critique, exchange, and dialog about their research topic. The primary focus is on the participants’ individual research projects, as well fostering networks, knowledge exchange and widening dissemination. Although it is primarily aimed at international PhD researchers, the workshop is also open to artists, curators, and programmers who are pursuing research outside an academic context.

The workshop is free but we cannot cover travel or other costs, which are expected to be met by participants or their institutions.
