EXPLORING THE RELATIONS BETWEEN TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY, USING PARTICIPATORY PEDAGOGIES
I'm a designer with foundations in microeconomics and sociology. I'm interested in using Participatory Design methods to create technological applications closely with the communities that are going to use them, and to sit down with the people and understand the multiple layers where technology intersects with power relations in society.
The question is then, how do we use the potential of technology to challenge oppressive power structures?
----------------- Over the last three years I worked as a facilitator/faculty at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, India, guiding design projects and conducting workshops using methods of participatory design and critical pedagogy. Each encounter with students was a space for discussion, reflection and experimentation on topics like gender, technology, the history of sciences, social media, the age of data amongst others. I was also part of the network of feminists working on research around ICTs in Asia. I´m currently based in Dallas.
