27-29 October 2011

Peripheries are increasingly considered in contemporary culture, research and practice. This shift in focus challenges the idea that the centre primarily influences the periphery, giving way to an understanding of reciprocal influences. These principles have permeated into a wide range of areas of study and practice, transforming the way we approach research and spatio-temporal relations.

The 2011 AHRA Queen's Belfast Peripheries conference will invite discussion via papers and short films on the multiple aspects  periphery represents --  temporal, spatial, intellectual, technological, cultural, pedagogical and political - with, as a foundation for development, the following themes:

Peripheral practices
Practice-based research
Urban peripheries
Non-metropolitan contexts
Peripheral positions
