Slowness and the Institution: Online Conversation Series

The Bureau of Noncompetitive Research along with the Art Education dept. and the Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance at Concordia University Present:
Slowness and the Institution: Doing Research Differently

The Bureau of Noncompetitive Research (Victoria Stanton and Stacey Cann) are hosting a conversation series, inviting scholars whose practices engage with facets of slow scholarship to discuss their research in the context of the academy, and how it might be applied to artistic processes within, and outside, the institution. Speaking with one person at a time, about one significant element in their work, the format of the series favours a slow, and expansive approach, offering a generous space of collective reflection—between our guest, the hosts, and the audience.
