The Spatial Communication Programme presents Professor Jane Rendell

From Critical Spatial Practice to Site-Writing:

The Transitional Space of Interdisciplinary Research


Tuesday, October 16 2012  6-7.30pm

Main Lecture Theatre

This talk will explore the transitional space of interdisciplinary research, taking a trajectory from earlier work on ‘critical spatial practice’, through more recent ‘site-writings’, to my current project May Mourn. The term ‘critical spatial practice’ describes work that transgresses the limits of art and architecture and engages with both the social and the aesthetic, as well as the interstitial spaces between public and private.

Jane Rendell is a writer and architectural historian/theorist/designer, whose work explores interdisciplinary intersections between architecture, art, feminism, and psychoanalysis.

This talk is part of a series of events organised by the Spatial & Surface Programme Group as a platform for the discussion of future developments in the field. Key thinkers and practitioners working across boundaries and at the cutting edge of their disciplines have been invited to present their work at LCC.
