Politics and Matter

          

The ‘Politics and Matter’ research cluster at the University of Bristol has just launched a blog. I’ve been a part of this group since it’s conception just over a year ago and we meet regularly to discuss our research and organise events. There are currently 9 members within the cluster who have a wide range of interests which include  affective spaces of limit experience, the creative ‘shock’ of the art-encounter, tissue economies, embodied performativities, and the intersection of neuroscience and geography. Broadly speaking, the group researches an ongoing geographical concern for the shifting relationships between the human and its contemporary environments. By bringing cutting-edge theory, innovative empirics, and creative methodologies together, we seek to complicate constricting and static conceptions of human action and experience. This work participates in wider interdisciplinary turns toward nonhuman agencies, vital materialisms, hybrid ecologies, machinisms, affect, biopolitics, process ontologies, and assemblage theory. For more details, as well as updates on our upcoming events and details of our research as it progresses have a look at the Politics and Matter blog: http://politicsandmatter.wordpress.com
