We are honoured that this WiP will involve special guests Dr Chenshu Zhou from University of Pennsylvania and Dr Jinyi Chu from Yale University. Dr Zhou and Dr Chu will be participating in an open dialogue regarding their academic career experiences as well as their presentations “Lockdown, Drones, and Collective Action in the City of Wuhan: Sensations of a Viral Video” and “How did a Chinese Ghost Become a Surgeon in St. Petersburg?” They will also participate as part of the peer group for the wider event.

The aim of these sessions is to provide a space where people can share their work, and seek feedback from the community, without the pressure of a particular format, theme or set of expectations (in contrast, say, to a formal conference). Contributions can include presentations of academic work and research, or creative projects outside of academia. We’re also happy to host any kind of workshop or activity you’d like to trial, or a game you want to playtest, or some creative material you want feedback on.

This is an open event without a fixed structure or format, but if you are planning on giving a spoken or conference style presentation please keep these to ten minutes to leave plenty of time for questions, discussion and feedback. If you could also bring talking points or questions you’d like to discuss that would be very helpful! International participants are very welcome but should note that we will be running on UK time.

If you would like to present something at Work in Progress #4, email us ( a brief overview (we do not require formal proposals) of what you’d like to do by the end of the day 31st March, accompanied by a title if you have one. Exact time slots will vary depending on how many contributors we have, but we hope to offer each contributor between 30 minutes in total (10 mins for presentation etc and 20 mins for question and discussion).

Deadline for submissions is March 31st.

In love and solidarity,

The LSFRC team
