About Inter/sections

Inter/sections is an annual series of events programmed by the students of Queen Mary University of London’s Media and Arts Technology (MAT) doctoral training centre.

MAT students founded Inter/sections in 2016 as a forum to examine the disjoints in methods, philosophies and practices that they grapple with as interdisciplinary researchers reconciling computer science with other fields. In its inaugural year, Inter/sections probed the theme of Symbiosis with talks on how an understanding of art history, participatory design and speculative design can contribute to better technology.
