Material Encounters

Material Encounters

The conference themes include

- how knowledge generated on the ground or in the field attaches to and is expressed through material forms of inscription;
- the relationships between these materials and their generation or acquisition in situ, their emotional trappings, their archiving, conservation, distribution, or dispersal;
- how such materials mediate between spatial or interpersonal encounters and later publications or between local, regional, and global perspectives;
- the power of place, spatial orientation (cardinality), and time as material elements in encounters; the significance of these issues for creative, critical, transdisciplinary scholarship.
