“Theme Week” is a model at Aarhus University Digital Living Program to connect Masters students directly with cutting edge international researchers in the classroom. In spring 2016, we are joined by Kevin Driscoll and Lana Swartz, two researchers from Microsoft Research Lab’s Social Media Collective. They’ll offer a week-long workshop about the unnoticed infrastructures that guide and undergird our everyday digital lives.
