PhD Project 6
Future memory making: Prototyping (post-)colonial imaginations with Namibian youth (working title)
The project will prototype with young people from Namibia representations of alternative colonial narratives and imaginations. It will engage the youths in exploring and prototyping possible ‘future memories’ for creating agency in the present: technologically empowered through engagement with digital and visual media; and situated in alter- native (digital) worlds in which their voices become an active part of the collective consciousness and commemoration. In the context of design anthropology, participatory design and emerging technologies the project will develop methodologies and concepts for how marginalized communities can be actively co-created and reworked into new ways of making futures.
