CITO reading group - Tim Ingold
from 04:30 PM to 06:00 PM
A CITO reading group to introduce and discuss some of the work of Tim Ingold. Tim was one of the keynote speakers at the 2016 IFIP 8.2 Working Conference that we hosted in UCD in December. (Tim’s keynote address can be found here.)
The two readings for discussion on the day are:
A piece that Séamas Kelly co-wrote with Lucas Introna for the edited proceedings of the 8.2 conference, which attempts to introduce Tim’s work through the medium of an imagined conversation with him. (We attempted to use Tim’s voice as much as possible by drawing on extracts from previous interviews and writings. Tim also helped us with the editing.)
The second piece is a paper entitled “Towards an ecology of materials”, which is a good introduction to aspects of his thinking and has much to say about (socio)materiality, embodiment, and movement/becoming.
