The concept behind the Thematic Workshops is to take a word or concept that many of us use in sometimes quite different ways, and to unpack what that word means within different disciplinary contexts. For our first installment we have eleven 10-minute presentations, followed by an open discussion during which we will consider, among other things, possible points of transdisciplinary connection.
