Tuesday 9 June 2015, 10.00AM to 6.00pm

An interdisciplinary workshop

This workshop event gathers together five papers concerned with excessive, wasted, intransigent and sticky materialities in art and literature. Leading on from 'Forms of Excess' held at University of York in the Spring term, this event takes a closer look at how matter and materiality offer a different perspective on cultural production. Papers will consider new approaches to ecology and the ontology of materials, as well as relationships between different species. The workshop aims to test these ideas and to foster an environment for discussion and debate. It is open to all students and faculty members and we encourage attendance for either the whole or part of the event.
