Lasse Blond - Deltager

In many domains of technology development, the participation of 'users', 'citizens' and 'patients' has become comme il faut and several liaison disciplines and ethics institutions have been developed to connect users with engineers, designers or healthcare staff. The aim of this seminar is to get beyond the individualism inherent in many of these approaches and explore instead the collectivities that are shaped by and created through diverse technologies from social media to data repositories to human collaboration with ‘co-bots’. Just as the imagined communities of modern nations were unthinkable without print technology, what new communities are presently emerging around new technologies? How do 'user collectives', patient associations and communities of practice change technologies and how are these communities experienced, articulated and organized? What are the epistemological implications for anthropology’s longstanding tradition for studying communities and sociality, not to mention the concept of 'culture' itself?

On the first day, there will be a grand opening of the network with keynote lectures by Prof. Kirsten Hastrup, Copenhagen University and Prof. Marianne Lien, Oslo University, a roundtable discussion on the anthropology of technology beyond universities and opportunities for networking.

On the second day, the workshop theme is "Changing communities and collectivities shaped by technology" and there will be a keynote by Prof. Jennifer Robertson, University of Michigan.
