Sympoisum on “Studying Ideas in Practice”, Centre for Digital Creativity, AU

October 23 - October 24

While ideas are considered important phenomena across a range of disciplines, from philosophy and art to science and design, and figure prominently, albeit often implicitly, in data, theories, and methods, ideas are rarely objects of research themselves. In this symposium, we will put ideas front and center as the object of study. In particular, we are interested in exploring what we might call the everyday life of ideas, as they emerge and evolve, thrive or fade away, and the practices and infrastructures that shape them. We aim to share and discuss methodologies, frameworks, and perspectives on studying the genesis, evolution, dissemination, and impact of ideas in practice. We welcome contributions from a multitude of disciplines including, but not limited to design, philosophy, psychology, political science, linguistics, anthropology, science and technology studies (STS), cognitive science, communication studies, and education research.

The symposium is in-person and requires the submission of a contribution paper. Remote participation or presentation is not possible.

Brief outlines must be submitted by June 30.

Notification of acceptance by July 31.

Full contributions must be submitted by October 1.
