gailTuesday 24th April with Gail McConnell.“All the music that transpires: poetry and attention”. Gail McConnell is a poet and academic who will lead us in considering the art of attention. Through the use of poetry, her own and that of others, we will listen and read as Gail guides us in the practice of attention. Gail  is a lecturer in the School of Arts, English and Languages at Queen’s University Belfast.

 

peter doranTuesday 29th May with Peter Doran (QUB). Peter will help us consider the significance of attention and consumerism, using the idea of the ‘mindful commons’. The power of capital is the power to target our attention, mould market–ready identities, and reduce the public realm to an endless series of choices. This has far–reaching implications for our psychological, physical and spiritual well–being, and ultimately for our global ecology
