The Hum of Collaboration by Jennifer Deger

Updated: Oct 21

Truth and Silence: A Soft-Spoken Philosophy Fest in the Northern Territory will feature presentations that connect, directly or indirectly, to truth and silence. We have already planned the following webinar:


The Hum of Collaboration, a keynote online presentation by Jennifer Deger (Professor of Digital Humanities, Charles Darwin University). Date: Thursday, 11 November 2021, 2:00-3:30 PM ACST (2:30-4:00 PM AEST).


What happens when multiple voices and perspectives come together to tell the same story, differently? How might visual, digital, and co-creative forms of telling enable the emergence of new constellations of truth? What new kinds of traction might such approaches offer to those of us working to address denials, avoidances, and refusals of many kinds, particularly in the arenas of social and environmental justice?


We will explore these questions with Jennifer Deger, co-author and curator of two recent, critically acclaimed experiments in social analysis, Feral Atlas: The More-Than-Human Anthropocene and Phone & Spear: A Yuta Anthropology.


Speakers short biography: Jennifer Deger is Professor of Digital Humanities at the Northern Institute and College of Indigenous Futures, Education and Arts, Charles Darwin University. Her research explores the new fractures and relationalities of contemporary life through digital practices of making, particularly in co-creative spaces between art, anthropology and environmental studies. She is a filmmaker, writer and anthropologist, co-author and co-curator of Feral Atlas: The More-Than-Human Anthropocene (Tsing, Deger, Keleman & Zhou, Stanford 2020) and Phone & Spear: A Yuta Anthropology (Miyarrka Media, Goldsmiths/MIT 20219), and co-director of the films Ringtone (Miyarrka Media, 2014) and Making Worlds Otherwise (Miyarrka Media and Otis, 2020).
