2nd CFP for Staying with Speculation Symposium, 13th & 14th June, Halton Mill.

SpecHub Interdisciplinary Speculative Research

Staying with Speculation: Futures, Natures, Politics

Knowledge Exchange Symposium

13th & 14th June, Halton Mill, Lancashire

Call for Participation

Speculation has become an increasingly widespread concept in disciplines across the sciences, arts and humanities. Its applications are as diverse as designing urban futures, studying geological phenomena and imagining future participatory politics. As this cross-disciplinary pool of research about speculation grows, questions emerge about its potential, as well as its concrete ramifications.

Staying with Speculation calls for researchers and practitioners from any field, in which speculation is an operative concept, tool, method or other element of research practice.

This will be the inauguration of SpecHub, a research group based at, Lancaster. The symposium will allow sharing of experiences and uses of speculation, as well as a writing retreat to build and plan collaborations. These will all be documented on the SpecHub website available here: http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/spec-hub/
