Trouble Makers/ Making Trouble : interdisciplinary

Location:
University of Greenwich
Date(s):
22 February 2008 00:00

The Department of Creative, Critical and Communication Studies is hosting a one day conference on the topic of trouble-making in the academy and its reciprocal relationship with Cultural Studies and Media Arts. The conference seeks to investigate how the Cultural and the Creative turn have challenged more traditional disciplines, whether they can provide new vocabularies and models for research and the danger of the institutionalisation of trouble-making.

Key Note Speakers include:

  • Paul Filmer Goldsmiths
  • Gary Hall, co-editor Culture Machine, Coventry University
  • John Hutnyk, Goldsmiths
  • James Swinson, University of The Arts


Program:
10.30am - 1 pm
Making Trouble: Poesis and Praxis  
This session will explore how practice and theory intersect; whether and how art-practice can be research and the transgressive potential of that relationship.

Key Note Speakers:

  • James Swinson, University of The Arts
  • Professor Johnny Golding, University of Greenwich

2-6pm
Trouble-Makers : Interventions in Cultural Studies

This session will explore  the topic of troublemaking and its reciprocal relationship with Cultural Studies, thus positioning it as the academic discipline which insists on the conceptualisation  of culture as the field of interaction of power and resistance. Moving back and forth between theorizing and researching, between ontological and critical hermeneutics the conference seeks to investigate the potential of Cultural Studies as a troublemaking discipline which can provide a new vocabulary for social research and a constant challenge to more traditional disciplines along with the danger of the institutionalisation of troublemaking.

Key Note Speakers :

  • Professor Gary Hall, co-editor Culture Machine, Coventry University
  • Professor John Hutnyk, Goldsmiths
  • Paul Filmer, Goldsmiths


To be followed by the launch of the Borders and Identities exhibition at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery and an evening of aural transgression at the Mitre hosted by Steve Kennedy and Zeke Alexander.
