Milieux is excited to host the inaugural Conference on Maker Cultures. For the very first time, this event will bring top international scholars studying maker culture together with active maker faire participants, scholars and students and the general public. Together, we turn our gaze on the maker movement itself though insight and discussion around five crucial themes: the corporatization of maker culture, cultural inclusion and exclusion, making as learning, critical making and design education, and maker cultures in everyday life.
The conference begins with a public symposium on Sunday November 18th featuring presentations from distinguished maker culture scholars. This will be a full day of public panels and engaged Q&A periods open to students and scholars, maker culture organizers and professionals, makers and interested members of the public. Explore our exciting roster of speakers and register now for the Sunday November 18th symposium.
The symposium is followed on Monday November 19th by an academic workshop for invited students, scholars and professionals. This will be a day of guided discussion and agenda setting as we collectively sketch this new and rich research domain. Students and scholars interested in attending the academic workshop should contact the organizers.
