Why Do Things Break?

We invite you, whatever your research or disciplinary background, to consider why do things break, fall apart, fall down, disintegrate, splinter, corrode, degenerate, devolve?
Think: break out, break into, break up, break around, break from, break down.
Think: families, relationships, institutions, communities, buildings, walls and boundaries
Think: ideological contexts – political, economic, religious, ethical, intellectual, social, sexual, artistic movements or revolutions
This roundtable workshop meeting is limited to participants who contribute to the theme from their individual disciplinary or research perspective or from a small invited group of participants familiar with one another wishing to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the theme.
