The 10th annual AIARG Conference was held remotely on 21-23 January 2021 on the theme of “Sharing Ground: Propinquity”. The conference organisers have kindly made the sessions from the conference available to view online.

This year the conference was hosted by Ulster University in Belfast and attracted over 120 delegates from across Ireland and Britain.  The keynote speaker was Joan Copjec, philosopher, writer and teacher and life-partner of the late Michael Sorkin.  

The main conference day had five presentation and discussion panels on the themes of Policy, Politics and Agency (x2); Climate Change; Materials, Means and Media, and Education as Environment and we were treated to an international range of papers and case studies.

The book of abstracts of the papers presented can be viewed here and a pamphlet produced in memoriam of Michael Sorkin can be viewed here.
