Staging complexity

In contrast with more conventional approaches to the uses of theatre for the public engagement with science and technology (e.g. pedagogical approaches to science communication), contemporary forms of participatory, community, interactive or digital theatre have also served as relevant arenas for projects searching to activate publics through agonistic and complex encounters with contemporary technoscientific issues. This was the case of Enacting Innovation, a performance that crystallises a dialogue between social scientists and theatre professionals working in the vicinity of STS in which that seek to 'stage complexity' and the paradoxes of otherwise repetitive innovation scripts.

Más que texto: antropologías multimodales

Las antropología multimodal emerge en tiempos recientes haciendo uso de la particular condición hipermediada de nuestra época, superando la tradicional fijación de la disciplina con la escritura. Una antropología que explora formas de expresión y representación más allá de lo textual, que está basada en lo multi-sensorial, que es performativa antes que representacional y que es inventiva antes que descriptiva. La antropología multimodal nos sitúa ante otros 'modos' de indagación antropológica.

Playing with method

How could games redevelop our repertoires of ethnographic representation and intervention? What vocabularies and considerations might allow us to unfold their full potential as relevant ethnographic or peri-ethnographic genres?
