LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | Prototype Nation: China and the Contested Promise of Innovation
Silvia Lindtner is an assistant professor at the University of Michigan in the School of Information. She researches, writes and teaches about DIY (do-it-yourself) maker culture, with a particular focus on its intersections with manufacturing and industry development in China. Drawing on her background in interaction design and media studies, she merges ethnographic methods with approaches in design and making. This allows her to provide deep insights into emerging cultures of technology production and use, from a sociological and technological perspective.
Together with Anna Greenspan (NYU SH) and David Li (XinCheJian), Silvia Lindtner is also the co-founder of the Research Initiative Hacked Matter. Hacked Matter. It has, since its inception in 2011, organized a series of workshops, lectures, public panel discussions as well as hands-on engagements with questions of DIY making, manufacturing, and innovation ecosystems.
