Our inaugural event (June 28, 2018)
featured a talk from Shannon Mattern of the New School (NYC) titled
Fifty (Thousand ) Eyes on a Scene--a riveting investigation of the
collisions between visualising technologies, surveillance, and the
immigrations policies currently being enacted at U.S. borders.

(Watch the video of Shannon's talk here on our archives page)

Shannon's was followed the next day by a collection of inspired scholars from around the UK and continental Europe working through similar themes and questions.  The eight assembled participants compassed a diverse range of digital/visual topics, including the politics of representation and relationships between being visibility, representation, and recognition, among others.  It's our hope that the substance of this workshop will resolve in a special edition of sorts,
so please check back and stay tuned for updates.  A very special thanks to
