From the 9th July – 13th July 2018, two back-to-back workshops are being organised by MUSTS researchers (Anna Harris, John Nott, Andrea Wojcik and Rachel Allison), as part of the ERC funded Making Clinical Sense project:
Learning/Teaching Materials Skillshare Workshop, 9th – 12th July: this practical hands-on workshop will explore the role of materials and other technologies in learning and teaching skills.
Skillshare Writing Workshop, 12th – 13th July: a workshop for PhDs that focuses on the stage of writing that comes upon returning from the field or resurfacing from the archive.
Both workshops will be held at the Hotel Management School Maastricht, a dedicated place of teaching and learning run by students. Renowned scholars and experts from anthropology, STS, history, physical computing, education and craft have been invited to the event. Participants will be doing practical workshops, listening, talking, writing, playing games, walking and cooking. Participants will also take part in a public talk as part of the Marres House for Contemporary Culture Training the Senses lecture series. Alexandra Supper, whose current research concerns the sensory and bodily practices of academic conferences, will be acting as resident ethnographer throughout. Academic and filmmaker, Paul Craddock, will be creating a film based around the workshop.
The workshops are made possible through funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and the Netherlands National Research School of Science, Technology and Modern Culture (WTMC), as well as the administrative assistance of Carla Greubel, Jacqueline Graff and Cindy van Montfoort.
