Speculative Lunch


Join us for the official launch of the Artists’ Writings & Publications Research Centre (AWP). The Leeds Humanities Research Institute are generously sponsoring a Speculative Lunch to enable staff and affiliates of the University to see the School’s new facilities, celebrate the Centre’s official launch, hear more about its activities and to share ideas about possible collaborations.

Friday 5 May, 2017

To book a place at the Speculative Lunch (12:30-13:30), please email Hope Wlliard at the LHRI.

The Artists' Writings & Publications Research Centre (AWP) consolidates two decades of excellent practice-led research into artists' publishing and many more decades of influential scholarship on the subject of artists' writings developed across the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies.

The AWP does so with the aim of supporting impactful and ambitious new research across disciplinary boundaries, in both conventional and experimental forms, which can connect these growing fields of artistic and critical interest with broader socio-cultural discussions about new writing and the ever-changing cultures of reading.

The Speculative Lunch will be directly followed by the exciting symposium, 'Document Practices'. Book a free place here. More info here.
