Digital Technology in Society II

[Re]thinking the technological city interdisciplinary: Infrastructures, media and more-than-human networks 

This Winter term course is an experiment in interdisciplinary thinking: It invites students to reconsider the above dismissed aspects as crucial and concatenated variants when studying technological innovation. Critical readings and practical experiments will examine various aspects of the city from the perspective of computer science and engineering, infrastructure studies, human geography, and plant biology. Students will use visualization tools and visual observation, ethnographic methods and artistic/creative expressions, to map and compare technological and biological systems as they intersect within the urban environment.
