From 16 October – 6 November, Shanti Sumartojo visited Aix-Marseilles University in France, working with colleagues Matthew Graves and Gilles Teulie in the Laboratoire d’Études et de Recherche sur le Monde Anglophone. Together they are investigating the relationship between local memory sites and the digital world, with a focus on how such sites engage in crafting regional identity through particular visitor encounters, pedagogic aims and site-specific narratives.
Shanti also visited Ann Heylighen, Professor of Architecture at KU Leuven, to discuss 2017 activities of our new Design for Wellbeing network that includes DERC and partners in Belgium, Sweden and the UK.
DERC
We investigate how people experience the digital in everyday life, By researching from the ground up we bring fresh insight to a constantly changing world. The Digital Ethnography Research Centre DERC focuses on understanding a contemporary world where digital and mobile technologies are increasingly inextricable from the environments and relationships in which everyday life plays out. DERC excels in both academic scholarship and in our applied work with external partners from industry and other sectors.
