Culture, Imagination & Practice Research Group (CIP)
Culture, Imagination & Practice (CIP) connects the activities of several initiatives in the School of Social Sciences to a new transdisciplinary research group, that brings together the study of disciplines, institutions and everyday lives. Engaging with social science, social philosophy, cultural studies, science and technology studies, psychosocial research and feminist theory, CIP addresses the political and cultural resonance of new social formations and social movements. The group investigates cultural, social and material practices as ‘world-making’ processes in the shaping of relations, and their consequences for ecology, geopolitics and social justice. We want to open up ways of understanding the shifting divisions between the social, the political, the natural and the technological.
