Seminar “How technology and the social is (not) related” by Heidrun Allert to be held on May 13th
We invite you to take part in the seminar “How technology and the social is (not) related” by professor Heidrun Allert (University of Kiel) on May 13th from 11:00 to 12:30 in Jakobi 5-B151, Tartu.
Heidrun Allert has said about the seminar: In social science we recently developed different approaches to analyse the use of technology. In this talk I will look at the genesis of technology. How are technology and the social related in the design of data driven infrastructures? How can we conceptualize "platforms" from a social and cultural science perspective? This approach is derived from Christiane Floyds work of the 1990th. She is a computer scientist asking, what computer science does. The approach allows to understand the development of technology as an open ended process.
