I’m delighted to have been invited to speak about my research at this exhibition/seminar this week as part of Engineers Week at the DRAWING PROJECT. Essentially, I’m going to be presenting a rough draft of my thesis, ‘Engineering Fictions’, for the first time to a public audience – suffice it to say I’m a little bit nervous. My CTVR colleague and Phd. supervisor Linda Doyle will be presenting also, so that’ll calm the nerves a bit. She’s not to be missed! (You can see her TEDx talk on the ‘Republic of Radio’ here)
Here’s the spiel on the event:
