We are happy to announce the new schedule for the GEM Lab's Works-in-Progress series for 2018-2019. Details about specific workshops will be circulated closer to the dates.
All workshops will take place at 6pm in the GEM Lab (1250 Guy Street, 630.15).
January 30th: SPAM Zine: Society, Politics, Art and Media by Stale Bread Collective (Film Studies).
March 20th: Transcriptions on the Voyage by Jean-Jacques Martinod (Film Production).
April 3rd: The Carousel Capital of the World by Natalie Greenberg (Film Studies).
The workshop is meant to showcase new and developing projects by the Fine Arts graduate community (and beyond), creating a space for interdisciplinary critique and feedback. Encouraging the engagement of workshop participants, the emphasis will be on research methodologies and future directions. We aim to create a space for alternative methodologies and practices, investigating research trends in the humanities such as visual anthropology, digital ethnography, field recording and sound experiments, approaches to information technologies, and other on the ground research practices. Workshops will be structured according to the necessities of the project. Workshop leaders will be invited to pre-circulate reading materials and introduce multimedia aspects of their projects to accompany their presentations. However, other forms of workshop organization are welcome in order to fulfill the mandate of in-progress, emergent research.
