Description

Living between worlds, thinking beyond categories: Experiences and expressions of the in-between

A transdisciplinary gathering within the OU

Date: 16 May 2019, Time: 11.00am-16.00pm

Venue: Milton Keynes, The Open University, CMR11

What is it to be between worlds, between spaces, between times? How should we make sense of experiences and expressions of the in-between? It is now commonplace for researchers and practitioners across many disciplines and fields to grapple with subject matters and circumstances that are described as indeterminate, ambiguous, emergent, volatile, messy, uncertain and ambivalent. To address such issues we find a proliferation of concepts including thresholds, boundaries, marginality, liminality, hybridity, complexity, transversality, contingency, duration and emergence, and we find a growing appetite for modes of thought and practice that can follow these subject matters as they spill out across, over and between disciplinary boundaries.

This colloquium will bring together researchers from across the Open University whose work addresses the between worlds issue. The day will be structured into three 90 minute blocks of which 30 minutes will be reserved for discussion. Each block will contain a number of short presentations addressing a shared theme (e.g. temporal belonging and becoming, spiritual journeys, between sexual categories).

Further details to be announced soon.
