Experiments in radical interdisciplinary collaborations

Wed, 12 June 12pm - 2pm



Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Third Floor, Richmond Building, Queens Road, Bristol. Bs8 1LN.

Come and join us for a Brigstow Ideas lunch that brings together three of our current projects for brief work-in-progress presentations and an opportunity for questions and conversation from you. These interdisciplinary projects explore very different aspects of radical interdisciplinarity, from how do you write a maths poem, using participatory community approaches to encourage physical activity, through to understanding how materials and textures can bring about positive emotions.

The projects are:

  • Tactile Textiles: the calming cushion with Chris Kent (Psychology), Annie Lywood (Bonnie Binary),Jonathan Rossiter (Engineering), Emily Ball (Psychology), Emily Crowe (Psychology), Alice Haynes (Engineering) and Yihua Zhu (Engineering).
  • How do you move: Improving the communication of the Chief Medical Officer’s Physical Activity Guidelines with James Nobles (Bristol Medical School), and Michelle Farr, Sabi Redwood, Clare Thomas and Emer Brangan (Bristol Medical School), Zoe Banks Gross and Rachel Clarke (Knowle West Media Centre), Zoe Trinder-Widdess and Rosie Davies (Centre for Medical Education), Charlie Foster and Russ Jago (Policy Studies), and Andrew Gibson (UWE).
  • Maths Poems with Mimi Thebo (English), Johanna Darque (Small Press Books), Rebecca Kosick (Bristol Poetry Institute and Modern Languages), Richard Pettigrew (Philosophy), Florian Bouyer, Dominic Verdon, Tyler Helmuth and Mauro Fazion Filho (Mathematics), Jack Thacker (Poet), Miranda Barnes (Poet), Holly Corfield-Carr (Poet) and Rowan Evans (Poet).

Our understanding is that this venue is wheelchair accessible and a hearing loop is available.
