Description

Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) Fall 2015 Seminar Presentation with Patrik Svensson: 'From Lab to Lounge: Liminal Spaces for Learning'

Patrik Svensson is a Professor of Humanities and Information Technology at HUMlab, UmeĆ„ University, and the former Director of HUMlab (2000-2014). His current work can be loosely organized under two themes: Digital Humanities and Conditions for Knowledge Production. The first theme includes research and practice in relation to the intersection of the humanities and information technology with a particular focus on the history, role and place of the digital humanities. The second theme addresses research infrastructure, spaces for learning and knowledge production, intellectual middleware, presentation software and academic events. His work seeks to be critical and interventionist. Recent publications include Between Humanities and the Digital (co-edited with David Theo Goldberg, MIT Press, 2015) and “Close Reading PowerPoint” (online publication). He is currently working on a project on space and knowledge production.
