QUMU Seminar: Molly W. Steenson
Historical Futures, Future Histories

17 November 13.15-15.00 in Samvetet

The speaker will be Molly W. Steenson from Princeton University, where she is a PhD candidate in the School of Architecture. She is an architectural historian but also works as a contemporary interaction designer and researcher interested in criticial design and futurecasting.

Molly’s research focuses on the connection of architecture to artificial intelligence in the 1960s and 70s, particularly in the work of Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the MIT Media Lab, and in similar architects who worked with speculative technologies. In this qumu seminar, she will present different approaches from historical and archival research and contemporary work in a discussion of methods around historical futures and future histories.
