Spring 2024: Wednesday Research Seminar series

WRS are weekly interdisciplinary research seminars, curated and facilitated by the profile area professors and addressing a different theme each term.

WRS welcomes SKH teachers, senior researchers, PhDs, MA students, and an invited public, WRS are SKHs primary context for encountering the research happening within and in relation to SKH. 

WRS provides a regular time and space for internal and external researchers to come together to share a variety of practices, perspectives and approaches, to identify affinities and differences, to raise common lines of enquiry, and to engage in critical discourse and intersubjective dialogue across an array of themes, subject areas and artistic disciplines. 

Processes of Documentation 

EightSKH researchers, who are either at the beginning, middle or end of their externally funded research projects, have been invited into conversation with fellow researcher/s of their own choosing, to share the materials, methods, and modes of documentation they have used, are using or are planning to use in their research projects. Some shared questions are:

What emerges aesthetically, ethically, temporally, spatially, materially, affectively and concretely in the documentation of an artistic practice or project? 

How is documentation conceived of, approached and manifested in art forms that partially or wholly produce their own documentations and in art forms that do not? 

How does documentation contribute to processes of translation; what occurs when an artistic practice is transposed to other media, other languages, other technologies, other materialities, other disciplines? 

How might particular processes of documentation affect the kind of knowledge which is created, communicated and passed on?

The Spring seminars series will conclude with an April Season of Black Studies, hosted by Future Brown Space. The season invites internal and external artists and scholars to reflect on processes and practices of documentation in relation to their work in, on and through Black Studies.
