Media Lab Doctoral Summer School: Event-driven culture: Case Study, “The Visit”

DOM-L0006 Department of Media Doctoral School

Event-driven culture: Case study, “The Visit”

Beyond being of place, culture can also be said to be a thing of time. This is particularly the case in contemporary virtual environments where multiplicities of human culture often converge, co-exist, and co-evolve. In this three-day seminar and workshop organized by the Department of Media (Media Lab) at Aalto University we first intend to explore the notion of time and how it is represented across diverse cultures. Subsequently we will focus on the notion of ‘Event’ as a unit of analysis with the ‘Visit’ as an illustrative example.

The School will include lectures and presentations as well as workshops in which participants will engage in concept design exercises.
