Author and philosopher Sadie Plant: Interlacings
Sadie Plant will consider her work on textiles, feminism, and the history of technology in the light of her recent research interests.
Sadie Plant was born in Birmingham, England, and studied philosophy at the University of Manchester where she gained her PhD in 1989. She taught Cultural Studies at the University of Birmingham for five years prior to setting up the Cybernetic Culture Research Unit as a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick in 1995.
She has worked freelance since 1997, writing, travelling, and teaching part-time, most recently on the Fine Arts MA at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design.
She published three acclaimed books: The Most Radical Gesture, Zeros and Ones, and Writing on Drugs. She has written for English language newspapers and magazines as varied as the Independent, the Financial Times, Wired, Adbusters, and the New Statesman, as well as more specialised journals, books, and catalogues in the fields of architecture, the arts, and new technology. She is currently working on a new quasi-fictional book.
