This is an informal meetup series for researchers and makers across the University of Sussex and beyond to meet others from a variety of backgrounds whose work also explores tools, machines or the digital.
The launch event in November 2017 at the University of Sussex Humanities Lab featured short fireside chats with Dr Thor Magnusson (Music), Dr Andrés Guadamuz (Law) and Prof Caroline Bassett (Humanities Lab), a group exercise to make the immaterial material, and consumption of some of the SHL's finest wines.
Please add yourself to the list above to be notified of future Techne events. Until then, machine maestros… ヽ(⌐■_■)ノ♪♬
