12-14: Framebreaking Fridays Research Seminar in the Chancellors Room w. Martin Shaw
Once a month, as the week turns towards weekend, we gather to unsettle some of the frames and assumptions that shape our understanding of the world. An international guest joins us to initiate a conversation that explores spaces in-between. Between disciplines, between the world of art and academia, and between humanity and the more than human world. Our first guest was Martin Shaw, storyteller and mythographer, founder of the Westcountry School of Myth and Story and creator of the Oral Traditions programme at Stanford University.
The Centre for Environment and Development Studies (CEMUS), Riksteatern and the Research Node Mind and Nature welcome you to a provocative and exploratory research seminar in the era of ecological unravelling and social unrest in which we live.
Approaching the Main University Building.
Unsettling frames and exploring the spaces in -between, in the Chancellors room of the Main University Building.
17-19: Open Evening Event at Uppsala Stadsteater: Dark Mountain Conversations – Culture in the Shadow of Climate Change w. Martin Shaw
A meeting point between worlds, a conversation that otherwise would not take place, an encounter on the boundaries between art and the academy. The shadow of climate change brings our ways of living into question. Against this backdrop, a series of international guests join us to initiate conversations that start with a performance, a story or an intervention that unsettles our assumptions about the world.
Our guest this evening was Martin Shaw, storyteller and mythographer, founder of the Westcountry School of Myth and Story and creator of the Oral Traditions programme at Stanford University. In conversation with Dougald Hine, co-founder of the Dark Mountain Project, Martin explored the relationship between mythos and logos, and the role of these different kinds of thinking in how we make sense of the age of ecological unravelling in which we find ourselves.
These events are a collaboration between CEMUS and Riksteatern, made possible with support from UU Innovation.
