Aviation culture

Northern Hemisphere Satellite Seminar

This seminar is aimed at creating a dialogue between scholars, museum professionals and other interested groups to expand the field of technology, mobility and aviation cultures beyond the Pacific and Indian Oceans to include the Northern Hemisphere.

The short papers aim to spark discussion, and will include a diversity of approaches including an account of the affective spaces of aviation and morethan- human airspaces. In these environments, humans are testing the limits of their humanity, which was neverfully defined or confined. Human experience was always environmentally and technologically networked. 

Discussion will include consideration about how technology has allowed or forced passengers to occupy this particular experimental space: the reimagining of humans as flying beings continues to evolve.

Speakers include:

Dr Prudence Black, University of Sydney

Prof Stephen Muecke, University of Adelaide

Assoc Prof Dorthe Gert Simonsen, University of Copenhagen

There is no fee to attend the seminar but please RSVP by Monday 14 September to
