Making at the edges: borders as zones of enquiry
Crossing borders, collaborative practices, and disciplines are topics that inspire Silke and send her on intellectual adventures. During this session, she will invite delegates to join her on one of those journeys through ‘connecting the unconnected’, and meandering over the role of material thinking in collaborative learning across disciplines. Silke’s provocations and interventions are informed by her recent involvement in platforms and educational projects that provide models of interdisciplinary learning, teaching and research.
