European Uni­versity Viad­rina - Chair of Soci­ology of Tech­no­logy at the European new School of Digital Stud­ies (ENS)

The chair of Soci­ology of Tech­no­logy is home of the Sci­ence & Tech­no­logy Stud­ies Group at the European New School of Digital Stud­ies. Its research focuses on infra­struc­tures of digital Europe, on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary forms of co-cre­ation und pro­to­typ­ing, as well as on digital and in(ter)vent­ive meth­ods. Based on a strong back­ground in soci­ology and cul­tural stud­ies we col­lab­or­ate with research­ers from com­puter sci­ence, elec­trical engin­eer­ing, polit­ical sci­ence, philo­sophy and his­tory and are engaged with act­ors from polit­ics, civil soci­ety and the arts.

up to four stu­dent assist­ants (SHK/WHK)
