New York Event: Why Do Things Break?

why do things break?


Double Dialogues is calling for presentations on the theme of ‘Why Do Things Break?’ for an international workshop meeting in New York, April, 2017.


We invite you, whatever your research or disciplinary background, to consider why do things break, collapse, corrode, degenerate, devolve, disintegrate, fall apart, shatter, splinter?


Think: break out, break into, break up, break around, break from, break down.
Think: families, relationships, institutions, communities, buildings, walls and boundaries
Think: ideological contexts – political, economic, religious, ethical, intellectual, social, sexual, artistic movements or revolutions
