works-in-progress (WIP) series
Call for Presentation Proposals (Graduate Students)
Deadline: October 15th, 2022
The GEM Lab’s WIP series is now soliciting proposals for workshop presentations to take place this fall and winter term. The aim of the series is to promote conversations and community among graduate students, with an emphasis on alternative and experimental research methods. Topics may draw on any number of fields across arts, humanities, and social sciences – including visual/digital ethnography, videographic research, sonic explorations, approaches to information technologies, archiving, innovative forms of documentation and dissemination, among many others. Presenters may also be invited to publish their work in In Progress – the GEM Lab’s research periodical (coming January 2023).
We welcome proposals from researchers, artists, and practitioners whose work contributes to discussions of global, digital, and public culture. Please submit a ~150-word abstract, along with a brief bio of presenter(s), affiliation, and outline of the presentation format. Presentations are typically 30-45 minutes, followed by a substantive discussion, and take place in the GEM Lab (FB 630.15).
Email your proposal to: firstname.lastname@example.org by October 15th, 2022
This year’s WIP series is organized by Montiana Ashour and Insook Park.
Works in Progress (WIP) is an ongoing program of workshops organized by lab members and coordinators, currently entering it's fourth year of programming.
The workshop series is meant to showcase new and developing projects by members of the Fine Arts graduate community (and special guests from beyond the faculty), creating a space for interdisciplinary critique and feedback. Encouraging the engagement of workshop participants, the emphasis is 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 flexible and structured according to the necessities of the project. Workshop leaders are 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.
