What is Changing Worlds?

Under the auspices of Changing Worlds, we ask how the worlds we inhabit change and change us, and how we as their inhabitants change them in turn, all the while taking into consideration social and structural power dynamics and matters of social justice and distribution of resources. In doing so, we hold the understanding that neither we nor others are ever neutral, but necessarily ‘biased’ in our positions in and towards the world as well as in our engagements with the world. We are interested in facing and considering the intersections, convergences and confrontations between science and technology, art, academia and activism. We particularly welcome critical and nuanced perspectives on as well as interventions in the worlds that are produced by and produce science and technology.
