Blood bricks may be less iconic than ‘blood diamonds’ yet their stories are no less profound; embodying the human and environmental impact of climate change.
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.
This conference will bring together scholars and practitioners who are interested in exploring the changing meanings, contours, and consequences of debt and indebtedness across contemporary Asia.
