The Women Making History movement was initiated in 2013 by Parvin Ardalan to engage in popular memory and popular history activism, uncovering hidden histories and new perspectives, looking back, as well as forward, on immigrant contributions, life and work in the now post-industrial city of Malmö. Women immigrants were a majority of the newcomers for many decades and crucial in the built-up of the city from the 1940s and onwards. Malmö University (Living Archives researchers http://livingarchives.mah.se ), including Anders Høg Hansen and Erling Björgvinsson has been partners in this activist-academia-local organisations collaboration. There has been dozens of events, many documented in newsletters as well as on the site.
The activities have been varied: cartoon workshops, dinner conversations, exhibitions, workshops, collaborations with design students – and not least a rewriting of historical timelines 1910-2016 (together with activists, journalists, many of them newcomers or migrated to Malmö). Now a book is out documenting the work. It is launched at Panora in Malmö Sat 11 June at 2pm. Welcome.
We’ve all heard about the Fitbits, GoPros, sleep apps and other digital trackers that create data points out of our everyday activities. But how did people self-archive before the digital? What does the era of digital storage do to our concepts of identity and self-representation?
The exhibition Illustration – foto – rörlig bild by Visual Communicaiton (year 2) and students from the course Den fotografiska bilden II have been documented by Marcus Karlsson and Fredrik Mårtensson.
On invitation of the Institut fuer Nordische Philologie at the University of Muenster (Germany), K3’s Micke Rundberg, Tobias Denskus and Michael Krona facilitated a one-day workshop on digital learning and the ‘Glocal Classroom’. The visit was facilitated by Magnus Nilsson who is currently a visiting professor at the institute, supported by the German Academic Exchange Service. About 10 academics from the institute and broader academic community enjoyed a day of animated discussion about digital and virtual learning opportunities and a practical overview over ComDev’s pedagogical tools and approaches to create our ‘Glocal Classroom’.
