An ethnography within the design processes of smart things/smart citizens and their visions of future

The 2nd of May took place Débora Lanzeni’s oral defence at IN3-UOC in Castelldefels, Barcelona.  Congrats,  a brand-new  Phd. at mediaccions!

Her doctoral thesis examines the entanglement of material processes by focusing in the ordinary processes of designing smart technologies in the so-called “Internet of Things” and Smart City project in Europe, analyzing how visions of future and moral values are intermingled in the creation of digital technologies.

Recordar y olvidar en la cultura digital

Tesis doctoral de Vanina Hofman, UOC, 15 de  Enero 2016 FELICIDADES!

En una época en la cual el debate sobre la preservación, la memoria, y el olvido están a la orden del  día,  esta  investigación  se  cuestiona  la  linealidad  y  transparencia  de  los  procesos  por  los cuales  se  preservan  y  transmiten  los  productos  culturales;  los  agentes  heterogéneos involucrados en esos procesos y los espacios que articulan.  Recordar y olvidar en la cultura digital

Men in Movement: Trans/forming Masculinities in Politics, Care, and Media

November (18th) 19th – 20th 2015
Espai Francesca Bonnemaison, Barcelona

Concept

Masculinity studies emerged in the 70s but have become more generalized in the last 20 years, after Connell’s famous Masculinities and her theorization of hegemonic masculinity. However, they are still scarce within social sciences and in gender studies in particular, which have mainly sought to address women’s absence from the canon and to uncover power relations in gender relations.
