Book Launch: Reclaiming Technology

June 14, 2023 @ 15:00 - 17:00

We are thrilled to announce the publication of our collective work as a book. Join us in celebrating the release of it with a reception at the corridor of 3D at the IT University of Copenhagen, on June 14th from 15.00-17.00. During the first half hour, a few words will be said about the book and the work behind it, followed by informal chatter, drinks and light snacks. Do come along!

About Reclaiming Technology:

The book is written as general audience-oriented academic writing and comprises numerous short contributions from both colleagues and close affiliates of TiP. The aim of it is to inspire ways of thinking, making, and intervening in technology worlds by opening up the conditions of technological possibility through various writing styles rooted in ethnographic and STS approaches. The book consists of thirty-six short essays of circa 500 words each.

Editors James Maguire and Brit Ross Winthereik asked their fellow writers to problematize some aspects of their research through a form of writing not restricted to the traditional repertoires of academic publishing. There are also those that are generated through the concerns and impulses that technology gives rise to (art, wonder, privacy, responsibility, aesthetics, evidence, monsters, bureaucracy, state, and collaboration). And finally, some are more conceptual in nature but are inspired by a research theme (network, optics, edge, collectivities, speculation, space, maintenance, movement, and brain-body).

The book addresses anyone curious towards how technology impacts society in general, including, anthropology and STS scholars, students interested in methods and writing, and lastly practitioners looking for conceptual resources to think about technology differently.

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 Zea Yde to sign up to the email list.
  2. Shut up and Write takes place every week onĀ  Wednesdays from 13:15 to 17:00. Based on the model promoted by Inger Mewburn, we commit to writing projects on the whiteboard and write in shorter sessions with breaks.
  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.
