Event Details

Research is a process of seeing, seeing something new or seeing something old in a new way. We don’t just see with our eyes, we see with our brains. In research, we recruit a variety of technologies for seeing. We can use machines to help us see – either to magnify what is too small, to bring closer what is too far, or to look inside ourselves and the other creatures and things we study. We set up experiments to provoke a process which we can watch unfold under laboratory conditions. We observe natural processes in their natural eco-social environments. We use made-up ideas - what we call theories - which help us get a better view of what we are studying.

Our panel of speakers across different disciplines will talk about the process of seeing in research. They will tell us about "how they see" in the process of research - what kinds of technologies and theories help them to do the best research they can do.

Our panel discussion and question session will be followed by a light lunch where you can stay and meet other Maquarie staff and students. Lunch will include vegan and gluten free options.
