Yesterday: five hours slicing through apocalyptic gales with my car, listening to Tom Zé. Arrived safely in Baltimore for the Students for Sensible Drug Policy Conference.
22nd-25 March is Doing Interdisciplinarity, the 2018 ASPECT Conference at Virginia Tech. I will be giving a talk titled “Psychedelic Research and Data Positivism.”
10 April I will be at the annual meeting of the American Association of Geographers in New Orleans, giving a presentation on a similar subject. The title is titled “The Electric Kool-Aid Turing Test: How Psychedelic Research Challenges Data Positivism.” The abstract is here.
13 April I am hosting this event at the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech. (And I’m still looking for participants, hint hint…)
27-28 April is Theorizing the Web 2018 — I am an invited speaker on a panel called “Bot Phenomenology: What it means to exist with technology, and what it means to exist as technology.”
Somewhere in there I’ll be traveling to Dallas for a wedding and turning one year older. And, hopefully by the semester’s end, defending a dissertation proposal.
