At the end of summer (in the northern hemisphere), I’ll be heading down under, to attend the annual 4S conference being held from 29 August to 1 September. I’m thrilled to be co-organising an open panel with Tim Jordan, former colleague from the 1990s, when we both worked at the University of East London. Tim is now head of the School of Media, Film and Music at Sussex University. Our open panel is about ‘the invisible aspects of infrastructure’ in which we hope to open up invisible (to whom, when) aspects of contemporary infrastructures of knowledge, consumption and production. The deadline for submitting abstracts has now passed. We have chosen 11 great contributions to form two panels, one focusing on research and education infrastructures, and the other on security and surveillance.
I shall also participate in the ‘making and doing’ session, with the SCOT game.
Full programme will soon be available on the conference website.
