GSD PhD Talks with Eden Medina

Thursday, Apr 11, 2024, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Gropius Room, Library at the GSD
48 Quincy St.
We would like to invite you to the first talk of our PhD Talks series on April 11, 2024 at 4.30pm with Prof Eden Medina from the STS program at MIT. She will present the book she recently co-edited titled 'How to Design a Revolution: The Chilean Road to Design' (Lars Müller Publishers, 2024) as well as the accompanying curatorial work/exhibition in Chile. Given that this talk is meant for PhD students interested in how such projects come to be, Prof Medina will emphasize the methods employed (STS, History of Science, Theories of Design etc) and also discuss how her earlier work on 'Project Cybersyn' and the history of Latin American computation and technology helped to inform her approach to the more recent exhibition and catalog. She might also discuss her experience collaborating with design and/or architecture historians, as well as her current work focused on the intersection of science and technology with projects of memory, justice, and social repair in the aftermath of state violence.

Please join us in the Gropius room at the GSD (entrance from the library, and one flight of stairs down to level B) at 4.30 on Thursday, April 11.
