Critical Media Design. Teaching as a process of social engagement.
We created Humanities/Art/Technology Research Center at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań in 2010 in order to search for effective strategies for conducting research on new social and cultural phenomena associated with the data-based society, and to explore the possibilities of new didactic methods. Trans- and interdisciplinary methods, which we use extensively, are based on collaborative work involving specialists from various disciplines – including designers and artists, as well as people from outside the academy. Trans- and interdisciplinary tools and strategies developed in the framework of our research are later used in the teaching process – in university classes and workshops where researchers, artists, designers and activists are trained together. We would like to share two case studies. One is our exploration of the spectral character of the Chernobyl disaster, and the second is an ongoing project of creating a digital system for social interaction with an environment touched by cultural and historical trauma.
