SIG, Special Interest Group

Inom Designfakulteten kan doktorander initiera och forma en så kallad SIG där önskade ämnen specialstuderas. Ett exempel, som gick av stapeln i samband med Internat 20, var Body-SIG som handlade om begreppet embodiment från olika perspektiv, “exploring the notion of bodily engagement, experience and physical movement as design material and thereby its design implications”. En annan SIG är Gender and Design som ges hösten 2013 och våren 2013.

Body-SIG: ”Working with the body as a design material inherently requires understanding of the moving body …the body-in-motion and its felt experience are the generative source and medium for exploration of dynamic, qualitative concepts for design...” Loke & Robertson (2009). For more info on Body-SIG, please contact Helena Tobiasson tobi [at] csc [dot] kth [dot] se

Gender and Design is a SIG on feminist epistemology and philosophy of science is in the making. Initially, a D! supported, collectively organised, tutor lead PhD reading seminar called Genus och Design conducted in the later half of 2011, the SIG is an ongoing effort by the student participants to sustain group discussions on the works of feminist philosophers and reflect on gender based conceptions of knowledge, subjectivity and critical inquiry. 

An immediate proposed activity is to meet as a discussion group around the open lecture by Donna Haraway on October 30th at Uppsala. http://www.gender.uu.se/seminarier/conferences/donnaharaway/?languageId=1

Suggestions for future meetings are welcome! Inquiries to be addressed to <zeenath [dot] hasan [at] mah [dot] se
