An event that some of you PhD students and researchers out there might want to attend this month. I’ve been invited to take part in the afternoon event ‘Researcher Essentials: Publishing and how to get Published’ at Loughborough University School of the Arts, UK, on Tuesday 17 June 2014, speaking about my personal experiences of publishing online and in print, and also through my independent curatorial practice.
The programme will specifically address early career researchers, largely from the East and West Midlands, and their relationship with the publishing industry through keynote speeches, a panel discussion, masterclasses, workshops, films and a networking social with a variety of publishers. It will look at the extended field of publishing: events, exhibitions, performances, film, photography, curatorial practice and sloganeering as well as traditional publishing, artists books and zines.
Confirmed speakers (other than myself) include:
- Keynote address by Andrew Hewish Centre for Recent Drawing (C4RD)
- Jane Tormey, Radical Aesthetics, Radical Art (RaRa)
- Phil Sawdon, TRACEY, Drawing and Visualisation Research
- Joanne Lee, Pam Flett Press, Nottingham Trent University
- Simon Downs, The Poster (intellect publications), Loughborough University
- Barrie Tullett, The Caseroom Press
