The Citizen Sense research group is hosting a year-long seminar series on “Sensing Practices.” The series attends to questions about how sensing and practice emerge, take hold, and form attachments across environmental, material, political and aesthetic concerns. Rather than take “the senses” as a fixed starting point, this seminar series instead considers how sensing-as-practice is differently articulated in relation to technologies of environmental monitoring, data gathered for evidentiary claims, the formation of citizens, and more-than-human entanglements. How might these expanded approaches to sensing practices recast engagements with experience, and reconfigure explorations of practice-based research?

The first talk in the event series includes Etienne Turpin on “Design for Civic Co-management: A GeoSocial Intelligence Approach to Crowdsourcing Urban Data,” 15 October 2014 from 16.00-18.00. More information is available here.

Additional talks that will take place in the series will be posted here in the near future.
