A Topological Approach to Cultural Dynamics (ATACD)

10-12 December 2009, Barcelona
Organised by Goldsmiths, University of London
and the University of Barcelona
Abstract deadline: Thursday 28 May 2009
Registration deadline: July 2009 (early) and September 2009 (late)
Across disciplines, intensive or topological approaches to the study of culture treat change as normal and immanent rather than exceptional and externally determined. Culture is understood in terms of possibility and topological approaches provide a set of tools to think about engaging different kinds of change - learning, transmission, innovation, adaptation, self-organisation and evolution. This conference asks: What is the potential of topological and other intensive approaches for thinking about cultural dynamics?
