movements, knowledge, and digital media
MAKERS adopts a particular angle to reflect on social movements. For MAKERS, movements are not only objects to be studied. More radically, they are true producers of knowledge about a different world and spaces for learning and transforming this new knowledge into reality.
MAKERS adopts a sociotechnical approach to the study of digital media - one that does not take for granted the effects of communication technologies and does not overlooks the effects of materiality on our lives. For MAKERS, digital media are tools for producing and disseminating knowledge, but also a contested object with a never fixed meaning.
