    Reconnaissance, Heart + Soul: A Participatory Strata-Walk

    Wednesday, October 18, 2017

      Please join IN/TERMINUS and the Hamilton Perambulatory Unit for a participatory Strata-Walk in downtown Windsor: Meet at the Art Gallery of Windsor, Friday 20 October, 12:00 pm. Free coffee! The metaphor that downtowns have a “heart” or “soul” lends emotional weight to the dense historical and cultural layers that define city life. Our collaboration combines stratigraphic cartography with the military practice of reconnaissance, enquiring into the relationship between the historic military presence in Windsor’s urban centre and current locations of its “heart and soul.”…

    Stories of the City: Call for Submissions

    Tuesday, August 18, 2015

      The cities of Windsor and Detroit have been undergoing a significant transformation in the last few years. Yet shedding the familiar stories of the city–those of economic hardship and industrial decline–has been slower to come. The Interminus research collective is organizing a month long exhibition in November 2015 that will focus on new narratives of post-industrial cities and alternative approaches to urban renewal. While the exhibition will begin with the local urban ecologies of Windsor and Detroit, we invite submissions from other cities undergoing…

Undocumented: A workshop for those without papers in Windsor and Detroit

While it is often presumed the Windsor-Detroit border is relatively easy to cross, many residents have been unable to visit their neighboring city since strict passport regulations came into effect in 2009. This workshop will be co-hosted with Windsor’s Broken City Lab and the Interminus Research Group to examine the uneven access to passports that impacts both new immigrants and lower income groups in Windsor and Detroit. As both cities have high unemployment rates, significant numbers of residents are unable to visit the other side….

Book launch: The Unreal Estate Guide to Detroit

Rather than seeing Detroit as an urban problem that needs to be solved, Andrew Herscher suggests that we regard Detroit as a “novel urban formation” and a site “where new ways of imagining, inhabiting, and constructing the contemporary city are being invented, tested and advanced.” Herscher is a writer and theorist whose work considers architectural and urban forms of political violence; his research has focused on locations as seemingly disparate as the former Yugoslavia and, more recently, Detroit. He teaches at the University of Michigan…

Migration and Narration: A panel discussion on North America’s multiple borderlands

While border issues have been at the forefront of American news media in the last decade, the material traces and individual stories of migration across these international boundaries has largely been sidelined in the post 9/11 security climate. This discussion brings together a panel of local experts on migration and borders to present multiple perspectives on North America’s three international borderlands: Guatemala-Mexico, Mexico-U.S., and the U.S.-Canada border. The panel will address the challenges involved in writing about borders and will contextualize the complicated political and…

in/terminus speakers series … Moving plants: toward an aesthetics of phytodynamics

A ‘plant’ is generally regarded as a biological entity that is rooted to a particular location – an interesting coincidence of etymology and existential condition. This idea of a biological entity that is fixed to a particular place and (therefore?) lacking in sensitivity, inherited from Aristotelian biology, continues to have a stranglehold on our understanding of a plant. While Anaxagoras, Empedocles and even Plato accorded sensitivity to plants, Aristotle and his strict distinction of animals from plants by way of one’s capacity to move and…
