Interface 2021

Academics and Doctoral Researchers: Don’t miss this interdisciplinary interactive session

Shared Language is an interactive online session that aims to encourage interdisciplinary conversations, overcoming the barriers that can prevent collaboration between different disciplines.

The session, running Tuesday 22 June, 12.30pm-1.30pm, is open to Loughborough academics and researchers and is free to attend.

Devised by Sigune Hamann and Jonathan Kearney from the University of the Arts London, in collaboration with neuroscientists at Oxford University, the project invites academics and researchers to bring three images that represent their research and use these to start conversations. Originally devised as an in-person session with cardboard ‘tables’, it has been reimagined as an online session.

Signue and Jonathan ensure that participants are paired with relevant academics so that time is used creatively and effectively.

You can book onto the session here. Booking is essential and you will be asked to specify your subject area and research interests at the time of booking.

This event is part of Interface – a week-long celebration of creative collaborations between artists, designers, academics, researchers and others. The events programme of online talks, live performance, screenings and interactive sessions showcases interdisciplinary practice and hopes to inspire future collaborations.
