Engaging tactics is a two-day post-graduate/early career researchers conference being held at Goldsmiths’ Department of Sociology on Monday, April 30th, and Tuesday, May 1st, 2012. The conference aims to question
the engagement of critical social sciences with both research participants
and (emerging) publics. It encourages site and tactic specific presentations, performances and interventions and provides a space for the exploration
of possible modes of engagement.
The conference includes a round table discussion with academics from
Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department as well as a key-lecture and practical
workshop with Prof. Dr. Claudia Mitchell (McGill), which aims at elaborating
and curating a group exhibition on “engaging tactics”.
The conference is organised by Anna Bull, Katharina Eist, Miranda Iossifidis,
Brian McShane and Christian von Wissel on behalf of Goldsmiths’ Sociology
Department Postgraduate Research Community in collaboration with the
British Sociological Association (BSA) and Goldsmiths’ Method Lab.
