Barbara Nino Carreras: Work in Progress

March 16 @ 12:00 - 13:00

Abstract: My presentation will explore informal and informal digital support in the context of a Danish public library and the challenges that library employees, citizens and their informal helpers encounter when interacting with mandatory digital self-services. Drawing on feminist grounded theory, I will explore sensitizing concepts (Bowen 2006) that currently guide my analysis such as informal welfare (Lyberaki and Tinios 2014, ), collective access (Mia Mingus 2010, Hamraie 2013, ), and relational autonomy (Mackenzie 2019).

We have four regular events

  1. The TiP Salon runs weekly during the semester. We convene around constructive engagement with new publications, visitors to the group and work in progress. The meeting is open, and runs at 12:00-13:00 on Wednesdays. Please contact Lara Reime to sign up to the email list.
  2. Shut up and Write runs weekly during the semester. Based on the model promoted by Inger Mewburn, we commit to writing projects on the whiteboard and write in shorter sessions with breaks. For more, see here.
  3. The TiP Invited Speaker Series has been running since 2018, and each year 3-4 invited speakers present their work in a public forum. All welcome.
  4. The TiP Writing Workshop takes place twice a semester, where contributions from all members of TiP are welcome. The purpose of the workshop is to give and receive feedback on ‘in progress’ work. Practically the workshop entails reading all participants’ submission, being a ‘caring opponent’ on one particular text, and participating in constructive debate about the texts.

Sporadic events

When PhD students are at the right stage of their studies, they resurrect the longstanding institution of the STS Reading Group. Previous seasons of the Reading Group can be found here (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017).
