Conference event: Ambiances and Atmospheres in Translation, London (Feb 25th-27th)

Next week I’ll be at our conference/event ‘Ambiances and Atmospheres in Translation’.

This has been put together by Peter Adey, Damien Masson, Rachel Thomas and myself and emerges from our ongoing collaborative project on the ‘Spatial Enigmas of Contemporary Urban Mobilities’ project.

There’s some really interesting presentations from speakers external to our project and we have a number of discussants (Derek McCormack (Oxford), Jean-Paul Thibaud (CRESSON), and Kyran Joughin (Arts, London) so should be a really stimulating event.

We’ve also put together some walking tour/soundscape materials from our research in St Pancras that we’ll be trying out with the participants, so that should be fun (I’ve not been involved in producing anything like this before…).

I think we are now full so I’m afraid it is unlikely we can accept any more requests to attend, but I’m hoping to post some kind of notes/summary on here and get beyond using this blog as an occasional advertising space…
