In 2018, the Association Southeast Asian Studies annual conference is being organised on the theme of 'Southeast Asia Meets Global Challenges'. Blood Bricks team member Laurie Parsons is organising sessions on 'Beyond Water Terror'. Call for paper information can be found here.
This workshop will introduce a series of examples of the ‘Creative Turn’ in Global South research and use these to explore the possibilities of these research practices; the challenges and pitfalls that researchers might face; as well as some of the practicalities of applying for and doing this kind of research.
Call for workshop participation: Although bricks could be considered ordinary, they tell complex stories about bodies, (in)justice, and power. Bricks matter; their making and consumption having political, material and affective force as a vibrant form of infrastructure which mediates and organises life.
