Speculative Collage Practices
This year, the Digital Humanities Center is hosting a monthly learning community on Speculative Technologies for Liberatory Worlds to build capacity for what adrienne maree brown calls “radical imagination,” where “all efforts to bend the arc of the future towards justice, is science fictional behavior.” Build community with students, staff, and faculty and explore imaginative possibilities through hands-on activities, critical play games, and more.
In this fourth session, we will be partnering with the Design Center to explore the method of collage as a speculative design practice which uses images, live materials, words, and more to create new compositions that speak to our values and our visions of the past, present, and future. Collaging tools and materials will be provided for this session but attendees are encouraged to bring materials such as photographs, pressed leaves, paper, and fabric to add to their own works.
To express interest in this learning community, please fill out this short form, and we will be in touch with more information. The learning community will be held on the following dates (all Thursdays) from 4-5:30 PM: 9/23, 10/28, 11/18, 12/9, 1/27, 2/24, 3/24, 4/21. You don't have to attend every session--drop in when you can!
The Digital Humanities Center is committed to hosting and supporting programming that reflects its core values of inclusivity, sustainability, exploration, and collaboration. For questions, accommodation requests, or issues, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
