Referring to Deleuze's and Guattari's understanding of minor literature, the Research Workshop 2023 Toward a Minor Tech seeks proposals questioning the universal ideals of technology and its problems of scale; including big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, blockchain mining, and how they relate to the global organisation of labour, extractions of natural resources, exploitation, energy consumption, and more.
The workshop is specifically targeted toward PhD/early career researchers, and we welcome submissions from researchers from inside/outside the academy, including artists, designers, and curators. It is free but we expect participants (or ideally their institutions) to cover their travel/accommodation costs.

The workshop is organised by the Digital Aesthetics Research Center, Aarhus University, and the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image, London South Bank University, in collaboration with King’s College London, and transmediale festival for art & digital culture, Berlin.
