Transtechnology

Transtechnology Research is a transdisciplinary research group situated in the Faculties of Arts and Humanities. Its constituency is drawn from historians, philosophers, artists and designers and is led from a historical and theoretical perspective with the objective of understanding science and technology as a manifestation of a range of human desires and cultural imperatives.

Its key focus is to understand how a technology acquires meaning and how it is used once it enters into the public domain. Using a range of practice and theory base methods the group is interested in unearthing evidence of human desire and cultural imperatives as they are manifest in the way that technology is invented, innovated and interpreted by its users. Topics currently being researched concern:

  • historical and philosophical aspects of nineteenth century media and of digital technology
  • early cinema and the technological imaginary
  • industrial design
  • the interpretation of science and technology in popular culture
  • historiography of technology
Transtechnology Research is a member of MADR, the Media, Art and Design Research Centre in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
