Roundtable discussion // Wednesday 3 April 2013 at 16:30 – 18:00 // BSA Annual Conference 2013
With: Noortje Marres, Nirmal Puwar, Alison Rooke and Michael Guggenheim (all of Goldsmiths, University of London). Chaired by Anna Bull and Christian v. Wissel.
This roundtable is sounding out the speaking and acting powers of multi-media techniques to collect, analyse, archive, and share ethnographic social research as well as other kinds of social data and materials. Drawing on the interventions and screenings presented within Goldsmith’s open stream ‘Engaging Tactics: Revealing Secrets’ during the first day of this year’s BSA Annual Conference, the discussion will envision possible futures for social research by mapping out Live Sociology from participatory art to digital methods, from curating to eating.
Live Methods, 2013, edited by Les Back and Nirmal Puwar, Sociological Review Monographs Series, will be at display during the Publishers’ Drinks reception on Wednesday at 7 pm.
