Online Reading Group
This semester, Experience Lab is hosting an online reading group on Media ecology, mediation and spatiality. The next session is May 10th 2019
The reading group is an informal, online, transdisciplinary gathering.
The joint inquiry is how physical environments can be understood as media of information and communication; how media (in a broad sense) can be seen as environments, or as co-constitutive of spatial experience.
We are at present particularly exploring media ecology as umbrella term and approach and exploring its connections to post-phenomenology and (post-) actor-network theory and the concept of mediation, found in these approaches.
Literature for zoom session May 10th 2019

This semester, Experience Lab will host an online ’reading group’ on Media ecology, mediation and spatiality.
The reading group discussions take place online in zoom.
Participants are expected to have read the literature for the session.
Media ecology, mediation and spatiality
Reading and discussion of literature contributing to our understanding of how physical environments can be understood as media of communication and information – and how media (in a broad sense) can be seen as environments.
The online discussions are organized by Associate Professor, PhD Connie Svabo and PhD candidate Signe Lykke Littrup. Their shared interest in digital / actual intertwinements in museum exhibition experiences, informs the inquiries.
The meeting is open for everyone. The meeting will be in English or Danish, depending on the participants. Collaborators and students are welcome – share the link.
