Final symposium of the SENSING research group
Sensors give things objects and machines the ability to “feel” – from smartphones and smart homes to wearables and implanted sensors, human and animal bodies and plant and elementary environments are thereby interconnected, scanned, recorded and measured. The SENSING research group at the Brandenburg Centre for Media Studies (ZeM) is concerned with how the usage of networked sensor technologies affects and alters human perception, feeling, knowledge and action.
Together with six other Research Training Groups funded by the Volkswagen Foundation, the fellows look back on four years of research and collaboration and present their results in the form of a poster (PDF in German).
By funding practice-oriented research collegia in the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences, and by specifically linking research and non-university practice, the Volkswagen Foundation aims to provide an impulse towards a stronger practical orientation in doctoral training in Germany.
