A Visiting Correspondent conducts a research residency and creatively responds to academic/artistic programs unfolding in a Fluid States event. They will capture, critique and expand the contribution of the PSi#21 Fluid States through the lens of their own research agendas, and their response to the place, the activities, and the conversations unfolding during the activities. Their contributions, and their textual, visual, sonic, video or other interventions will become a critical component of PSi#21 Fluid States, navigating the topics and the terrain for a global audience, and, where there is interest in pursuing it, their contributions may also become part of PSi publications – e.g. journal issues – coming out of PSi#21 Fluid States.
