Techne Meetup (ノ°∀°)ノ


location University of Sussex | Mon 27 Nov 2017, 17:00 @ Sussex Humanities Lab

We invite researchers of all levels to join us for a new informal meetup that will bring thinkers and practitioners together across the University of Sussex and beyond whose work explores tools, machines and/or the digital. The evening will feature short lightning-style chats from Dr Thor Magnusson (Music), Dr Andrés Guadamuz (Law) and Prof Caroline Bassett (Humanities Lab) and the space to discuss ideas, meet fellow researchers in the field, and consume some of the SHL’s finest wines. Until then, machine maestros… ヽ(⌐■_■)ノ♪♬
