Sensitivities
Beskrivning av avhandling: 

 

November 2012:

I am one year into a PhD within media and communications studies at Malmö Högskola (K3) in which I am researching how a notion of "sensitivities" might be developed in relation to the dynamic mediated ecologies that one can see taking root and emerging in tandem with other ecosystems of the contemporary moment (e.g. cultural, political, economic, material, aesthetic). My method for doing so in the dissertation involves examining various critical approaches and theories, predominantly from media studies and media-focused philosophy, and using such theories to develop an understanding and approach for further working out a notion of mediated sensitivities. In developing such a critical approach, I am also attempting to test the theories through interpretation of various media practices, often via the aesthetic and critical spins put on these practices by artists working with so-­called new media. In order to better understand such practices, I believe it is helpful to engage with the many important issues of design practice and research that can inform the creation, uses and understanding of mediated practices. To this end I have started to take a few introductory courses in interaction design, as well as engaging with theoretical concepts relating to "practical knowing."
