Half Day Seminar (Registration Required)
23 September 2015
8:45 – 12.30
Room 3A08 at ITU
How does navigating through an environment shape the environment and, in turn, how does the environment ‘kick back’ to shape people, technologies, and energy? This event will explore how different sociotechnical environments, from the military and their drone aircraft in the air, to prehistoric people and their technology in the sea and land, are enacted. Through open discussion it will explore how we might understand these environments and their energies differently.
