DATE: 5-7 april 2017
VENUE: Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH), UNIVERSITY of edinburgh, uK
The Conference aims to probe some of the most pressing issues facing the humanities as academic disciplines and interdisciplinary fields. To do this we will place the motif of inside/OUT at the centre of our enquiries. Using this theme, we hope to show that humanities disciplines are not passive observers of the social and economic lifeworld, but are themselves transformative and disruptive—in productive ways.
Date: 7-9 June 2017
VENUE: AARHUS INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED STUDIES (AIAS), AARHUS UNIVERSITY, DENMARK
Recent years have witnessed an intensive growth of systems of measurement and an increasing integration of data processes into various spheres of everyday life, so much so that it can be argued that we are now living in a ‘metric culture’. This two-day international conference brings together relevant scholars who are engaged in the study of practices of self-tracking and related technologies to critically reflect on the way metric culture is unfolding within and affecting the various spheres of our everyday life.
