This workshop provides a deep dive into cyborg theory & cyborg anthropology. The figure of the cyborg is, in the words of Donna Haraway, a "condensed image of imagination & material reality," & in a cyborg world, "nature & culture are reworked." To that end, the workshop will explore how a cyborg anthropology approach uniquely combines grounded research on the realities of human-technology interactions with an openness to speculation & imagination. We will also discuss how to use the lessons of cyborg anthropology to jumpstart innovation & reinvigorate established research programs.
Participants will leave the workshop with new knowledge & experience in research techniques used in ethnography & design research for studying human-technology systems.
