Despite this centrality, light is relatively invisible as a social scientific topic. Based at the LSE, Configuring Light aims at developing interlinked projects focused on the ways in which light as a material is configured into built environments – and with what consequences – by using multidisciplinary and academic-practitioner collaborations. Configuring Light is a joint initiative of Dr. Don Slater and Mona Sloane (LSE) as well as Dr. Joanne Entwistle (King’s College London). Crossing boundaries between social sciences, humanities, architecture and technology, Configuring Light aims at developing new concepts, methods and information to understand light as material culture.

Configuring Light successfully hosted the Urban Lightscapes/Social Nightscapes workshop on 13-17 October 2014. You can read the project report here and watch the documentaries on the project website: www.socialnightscapes.org
