I am happy to announce that the session proposal that Michael Guggenheim and I wrote has been accepted for the 2006 conference of the EASST which will take place August 23rd–26th in Lausanne. Check out the call for papers on Buildings, Technology, Interaction.
It is great that Michael approached me on this subject. I am really looking forward to discuss the role of buildings with researchers who have an STS background and it will be interesting to see how different the discussion in such an environment will be compared to discussions with urban studies people. Usually, I know discussions of places or the role of space in general; this session, however, will focus on buildings and it will be exciting to see what details and what specific features will come to light if one concentrates on the material entity of the building, on its uses, and on its change through use.
