Encounters are central in the ways that personal and everyday life are lived, in all their complexity and nuance. Even fleeting encounters can matter profoundly, and can speak to the multi-layered nature of the experience of living. Encounters can be lenses for and animations of our ways of knowing the world. Encounters enliven debate and argument about where such knowledge comes from, how it gains potency and vitality, and about what kinds of attentiveness to the world we need to use in creating it.
In this major conference we will be using the theme of ‘encounters’ as our starting point for interdisciplinary dialogue.
