Keynote (15:30-16:30)
Jeffrey Schnapp (Harvard University), Actionable knowledge [ENG]

We inhabit a world in which there exists an unprecedented proliferation of freely accessible and (sometimes) high quality information; information that no longer resides on library bookshelves alone, but rather that, thanks to the ubiquity of networks and the smart phones we carry in our pockets, accompanies us as we move about the world. Yet on issue after issue – climate change, vaccinations, immigration, history, culture... – this ever-expanding library struggles to shape public beliefs and actions. My talk will tackle the question of how to cut through the noise and how to make knowledge matter. Its focus will be on the role of critical design practice, on the one side, and on the need for new models of university level training and organization that merge the practical with the critical and theoretical, on the other.

Discussant: Giulia Pellizzato (Harvard University)
