Experimentality is the 2009-2010 Annual Research Programme of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Lancaster University, and is being delivered in collaboration with LICA and many other organisations across the Northwest of England. It is a year-long collaborative exploration of ideas and practices of experimentation in science and technology, the arts, commerce, politics, popular culture and everyday life. In a linked series of events in the Northwest of England - interdisciplinary workshops, arts events, and an international conference - it brings together leading practitioners from various fields; academics from the social and natural sciences, arts and humanities; and members of the wider public. It uses the notion of the experiment to explore vital questions about the relationship between knowledge and power, freedom and control in the modern world. For more information, see
