This semester’s theme is “mapping technology”: How can we map our relationship with objects, their techniques and technologies, as bodied, gendered, desiring subjects? Our theoretical discussions will be complemented by films, pieces of music and literature, a large number of artist’s books and other works of art and design, on which you can hone your critical skills, and which you can use as jumping boards for future academic and/or creative work.
As a team of four module leaders, we will be mapping technology from four perspectives:
Mapping the Immappable – Osman Şişman, AÜ ID
-vert- it – Şenöm Yalçın, METU FLE
Gendering of technological objects – Pınar Kaygan, METU ID
Technological imaginations – Harun Kaygan, METU ID
