Online Workshop with Caroline Sinders

Caroline Sinders will be offering an online workshop as part of People’s History of the Internet, a research project which aims at producing a decentralized and global narrative of the network’s presence and impact in our daily lives.

The workshop looks to broaden, shift or remediate accepted narratives or representations of the Internet, and to highlight key figures (some of them women-identified, or BIPOC) and moments which have largely been erased from canonical histories of the Internet. Participants will be invited to contribute data which brings forth our intimate, personal, subjective or countercultural experiences of (and entanglements with) the web.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology, as part of their end-of-year exhibition and symposium In the Middle, a Chimera.

• Duration: 2 hours
• This workshop will be offered in English.
• Places are limited and reservations are required.
• Health measures will be followed: wearing of a mask or face cover mandatory, disinfecting hands and maintaining physical distancing of at least 1m from each other.
