Events by the Future Anthropologies Network (FAN)
In September 2016 FAN co-organized the workshop “Thinking with ethnography” along with CASTAC (Committee on the Anthropology of Science, Technology, and Computing) an official list of AAA and XCol (Experimental Collaborations Ethnography beyond participant observation). In the 4S/EASST CONFERENCE BARCELONA – 2016: Science and Technology by Other Means framework. Taking the insights resulting from the workshop, we are currently working on the development of a special issue on ethnography, future, experimentation and anthropology of technology.
FUTURES SEMINAR AND LAB – BARCELONA 2015
The Future Anthropologies Network (FAN) meeting took place from 21-23 June 2015 in Barcelona, co-funded by EASA and the IN3 (of the Open University of Catalonia) and hosted by BAU Design Centre. We started the event with a series of presentations to share our current projects and ideas. Then in line with our ambitions to develop new ways of researching futures we investigated Barcelona's temporalities. Watch this space for future events and activities.
