Turbulent Themes

Turbulence has been one of the big themes last year into this year. After a couple of conferences (in the UK and in Australia) last year, which looked at complex change in human and natural systems, Paul followed these up with a keynote address at the Adelaide Festival Visual Arts Program, ‘The Nameless Shadowy Vortex: the Artist of Transition,’ (5 March; podcast available via Adelaide Festival website) and, later that week, an evening talk at the Institute for Postcolonial Studies (Melbourne), called ‘Sea Level: Turbulent Media, International Relations’ (8 March). The following month, as a guest of the Moore Institute (University of Ireland, Galway), Paul spoke on the theme ‘Turbulent Zones: the poetics of sustaining places in unsustainable times.’
