Inside the department

Topology is rapidly transforming itself into a new paradigm stretching across sciences and arts, theory and practice, and industry and the academy.

The TRU has been set up to explore the two inter-related ways in which topology provides a conceptual language for understanding relationships, intensities and transformations - outside its original field of mathematics. One is as a methodological tool in social sciences and architecture. The other is as a tool for performance across a range of arts and creative practices. Both are interested in topology’s understanding of transformation and non-metric relationships.
