Event description

Description

Inter/sections is an annual symposium that combines an exhibition, talks, workshops and performances into a week-long discussion of innovative and interdisciplinary research in arts and science. It is organised by the Media and Arts Technology doctoral programme at Queen Mary University of London.

Hosted at the Mile End Art Pavilion in the heart of East London, Intersections 2017 focuses on ethics and politics in media and arts technology. Invited experts will share their works and thoughts about labour ethics, digital surveillance and bioethics amongst others, fostering discussion between academia, industry, government and the public.


Speakers

For our one-day symposium, we have two excellent invited speakers so far. Our speakers will focus on how emerging technologies raise new ethical dilemmas, with a brief focus on ethical and political issues faced by the researchers, artists, and designers working within the theme.

Kate Bevan, writer, consultant & broadcaster

Kate is a freelance writer, editor and broadcaster specialised in technology and social media. In her articles she draws attention to social presence caused by social media, and the relationship between consumer and enterprise technology.

Dr. Stephen Minger, expert in stem cell technology

Dr. Stephen Minger is an expert in stem cell technology. He is actively involved with the UK Department of Health and with the Minister for Public Health in the consultation with both Houses of Parliament that led to the passage of the Human Embryo Bill of 2009 and the inclusion of new forms of animal-human embryos within primary legislation.
