D-FUTURE: Prácticas de futuro, espacios de creación digital e innovación social

This interdisciplinary research project study future-oriented practices for social innovation that are rooted in processes of digital creation (design, digital fabrication, development of technology, cultural and artistic productions) and in digital story telling. Our goal is to analyze how social innovation is mobilized in digital creative spaces as co-workings or maker spaces, and projects linked to methodologies of work collaboration and design.

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.

ENGAGING WITH/IN DIGITAL-MATERIAL WORLDS

At a moment when digital and material worlds are entangled in ever intensifying modes of knowledge production and sociality, the contemporary humanities and social sciences are called on to offer novel accounts of the implications of digital life and networked matter. Engaging with/in digital­material worlds implies an exploration across diverse theoretical­empirical fields of inquiry on the digital materiality of knowledge and how we make sense of a range of modes of emergence, intensities, relations, bodies and things within digital culture.
