Postdoctoral researcher Þóra Pétursdóttir in the Object Matters research group will be the keynote speaker at the conference ‘Antinomies of Vagueness’ at the University of Copenhagen in April. The conference aims to explore the ways in which vagueness, ambiguity, voids and vacancy features in human social life. The aim of the conference is to bring bring these issues into play across
disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, such as anthropology, archaeology, architecture, art history, history, human geography, linguistics, urban studies, media theory, philosophy, and rhetoric. A multi-disciplinary approach has the potential for offering novel perspectives on the impact of vagueness and vacancy in social life, the condition under which they come
into being, or work, as well as the epistemological consequences of recognising vagueness and vacancy as empirical phenomena.
The conference is organized by The Saxo Institute & Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies and takes place from 20th to 21st of April. You can read all about it here.
