In May I was invited to give a keynote lecture at the University of Edinburgh – during their Digital Scholarship Day of Ideas. I talked about HUMlab and Medieval Materiality in Digital Interfaces. The lecture is now on-line and can be viewed here.
Last month i gave a presentation at the symposium Minne, makt, moral: Historia i samtidsperspektiv, Linköping University. I talked about Mary and Memoria, Martin Wiklund about “The justice and injustice of Memory”, Claudia Lindén, “The Ghost as feminist allied: about the Construction of time and history in contemporary feminist theory”, and finally author Anna-Karin Palm talked about “Memory is a narrative.”
The symposium, organised by Kristina Fjelkstam turned out to be very interesting and I truly enjoyed listening to the other presentations.
On my way to Umeå to attend and present at a conference that we are hosting in HUMlab – together with the Wallenberg Foundation, Stanford University and Lund University –
I am very excited and honored to be on the same panel as Tara McPherson from USC, Zephyr Frank from Stanford and Shannon Mattern from Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts.
Today I’m working on a presentation that I will give tomorrow at Gothenburg University. I am really looking forward to visit the Department of Applied Information Technology. The image below is from the conference Words and Matter. The Virgin Mary in Late Medieval Parish Life held at HUMlab, Umeå University.
