We've been lucky to have a series of great visitors to INCITE over the past few weeks. They include:

James Crabtree from the iSociety and voxpolitics. He talked about his voxpolitics blog, e-democracy and blogs as political and participative tools.

James Leach "is a Research Fellow at King's College Cambridge, and Associate Lecturer in Social Anthropology, investigating the theory and practice of description, with an emphasis on how material and social forms emerge from the processes of interdisciplinary collaboration" (quoted from James presented a new paper about anthropology and arts collaborations.

And just yesterday, Drew Hemment, who is currently a research fellow at the School of Art and Design at the University of Salford and who runs Futuresonic, talked to us about his new project concerning mobile devices and surveillance.

Next week, we're looking forward to hearing from anthropologist Diana Bewley about her research with business owners on Brick Lane in London.

Thanks to all of our guests.
