UoL Research GardenUniversity of Lincoln Research Garden | 20th & 21st June | Lincolnshire Show

Postgraduate Research students will deliver short, interactive soap box presentations at the University’s Education stand this coming Wednesday and Thursday. These presentations will allow all the public attending the show an insight into the areas of research currently undertaken by PGR students, and how they are impacting on the environment, community, industry etc. at a local, national and international level across all disciplines.

Over the 2 day period of the show, students from across the University will present each day, with an allotted time of 30 minutes, during which they will talk about their research and its impact. The sessions will also include interactive elements such as video, physical examples, research equipment and questionnaires for the public to complete, and finish with a question and answer session. This will allow the public to see the “real-world” impact of current research activities at the University as well as demonstrating the full range of research projects.

Critical Encounters Research Series

Louise LePage (University of York) | Twenty-first Century Stage Naturalism: A Theatre of Robots?

Weds 27th June 5pm | AAD0W25 

Sherry Turkle, writing about the psychology of human relationships with technology, presents certain machines, such as the computer, as ‘test objects’, i.e. particularly evocative objects, which are challenging of human distinctiveness and uniqueness. Animals were the test objects of the late nineteenth century’s Naturalist Theatre – the objects by which humans reflected upon their own forms and natures. Today, the test object has changed. Fast advancing technologies means we are entering a time of the posthuman, an historical moment when evolution is no longer a natural phenomenon but a technological one.

The stage robot is an estranging figure. Robots don’t belong on theatre stages. Theatre is traditionally a humanist space. The stage allows for nonhuman objects such as puppets to perform but puppets are framed by ages-old traditions, which are markedly lacking to robots, which arrive on our stages from science fiction and factories.

What are the implications of placing robots on stage? What identities do they conjure, what forms do they take, and what roles do they play?

Louise will propose ways in which the robot not only makes us rethink our human forms, but also throws into relief the workings of dramatic theatre as we consider such questions as: can we believe in a robot as a character? What is the nature of that belief? What are the (theatrical) structures that make such belief possible? What can the robot, conceived as a performer, teach us about theatre?

Dr Kate Thomas | 3rd July 5pm | SLB0006 Steven Langton Building

“My Brilliant Career – and other stories” - “In this presentation, Kate introduces and reports on her research, but also traces the choices and transitions within her own ‘career’; mapping experiences and ideas which have led her to challenge and critique the taken for granted in all her research. As a poet and cartoonist, Kate also shares some of her recent experiments with the poetic and the visual as ways to further explore and communicate her research findings.”
