On theÂ 17th NovemberÂ fromÂ 10:45AMÂ toÂ 12:30 PMÂ (PST) at theSOMArts centreÂ inÂ San FranciscoÂ the public is invited to participate in a roundtable discussion withÂ Karen Barad, currently Professor of Feminist Studies, Philosophy, and History of Consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a diverse panel of researchers ranging from ethnographers to artist.
Baradâ€™s seminal 1996 essay, where she coined the term â€œintra-action,â€ will serve as a theoretical charter for the roundtable.
â€œBoundaries do not sit still, it is through specific intra-actions that a differential sense of being is enacted in the ongoing ebb and flow of agencyâ€¦Agential intra-actions are specific causal material enactments that may or may not involve â€˜humans.â€™ Indeed, it is through such practices that the differential boundaries between â€œhumansâ€ and â€˜nonhumans,â€™ â€˜cultureâ€™ and â€˜nature,â€™ the â€˜socialâ€™ and the â€˜scientificâ€™ are constitutedâ€
Members of the roundtable will each give short â€œprovocationsâ€ (3-5 minutes), bringing Barad into conversation with empirical matters and concepts from their own assorted texts on the table. Audience members are also invited to participate in the discussion and become provocateurs.
Following the roundtable,Â Karin BolenderÂ of the Rural Alchemy Workshop will be performing â€œGut Sounds Lullabyâ€ at 2:00PM in the same space.
