This panel brings together three thinkers whose work (creative, critical, and organizational) engages the boundaries of academic enterprise with the express intention of troubling institutional structures. 

Susan Grossman, Director, Community Learning Initiative, University of British Columbia, has worked closely with community partners including parents, students, non-governmental organizations, representatives of city government, and business leaders, to launch and sustain a number of community based initiatives. She holds a bachelors degree in History from Kenyon College and a Masters in Higher Education Administration from the University of Michigan.

An anthropologist of material and visual culture and producer of screen-based media, Angela Piccini is an investigator on two UK-based projects which question and re-imagine co-production, regulation and public engagement through art and media. Her media practice has been performed and exhibited in Canada, the UK and Finland. A faculty member from University of Bristol, she is currently serving on the UBC Behavioural Ethics Board during a Vancouver sabbatical.

Jaime Hilder is a Los Angeles and Vancouver-based artist who is currently teaching at Emily Carr. His practice engages with issues surrounding economics, information, and urbanism. Completing a PhD in English at the University of British Columbia in 2010, Jamie is a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellow in the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he is pursuing a project that draws connections between post-1970 economic theory and aesthetics. His visual work has been exhibited and published in North America and England. His critical writing has appeared in Contemporary Literature, Fillip, Yishu: Contemporary Chinese Art, Critical Survey, and in the recent edition of Rodney Graham’s The System of Landor’s Cottage: A Pendant to Poe’s Last Story.
