12.30 Tue 20th Nov 2012 Light, Logic and Leicester Prof Ernest Edmonds - TDC Lunchtime
Prof Ernest Edmonds, Director, IOCT
12.30 Tue 20th Nov 2012, Transdisciplinary Common Room
Review: My exhibition at Site Gallery (from 16th) and the Phoenix Master Class on the 19th deal with the transdisciplinary art research that I began at Leicester Polytechnic in 1968. I started transdisciplinary research (though we did not call it that) in art and technology in 1968 when a research assistant at Leicester Ploytechnic. I later built a transdisciplinary research centre around the topic of human computer interaction with the aid of a £1M grant. The Site exhibition, Light Logic, reviews some of the history and current results. The Master Class will introduce several pioneers to Leicester. This talk will review the dvelopments. Where are we now? Where next?"

How TDC lunchtimes work
TDC Lunchtimes offer an opportunity to mix informally with colleagues from across the university. There is always a pot of tea on the go so why not bring your sandwiches and enjoy lunch with us? This term we meet every Tuesday for an hour from 12.30-13.30. There will be a talk or video or workshop for about 30 minutes, then the rest of the time will be taken up with conversation and networking around the teapot.
There are still some spare slots so if you'd like to offer a session please fill in the form here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your idea.
The TDC is based in the old surgery behind Fletcher building, No.36 on the Campus Map. Access is by staff card, or ring the doorbell.
