The knowledgeable citizen: Expert-laymen communication and participatory practices in a scientific and technological society

Digital technology, media and the Internet are increasingly used in the communication between experts and laymen. Today, scientifically generated knowledge and controversies are encountered and propagated through digital technologies, creating arenas for participation and provoking discussions on knowledge and expertise. However, this is not a movement restricted to the introduction of computers and the Internet. During different times arenas for communication and participation in knowledge building between experts and laymen have been established, blurring the boundary between scientists and the lay. This also includes motivation for higher education, begging questions of how meaning and importance of learning has been framed during different times and contexts.

Studio 2 focus both contemporary and historical cases of the role of technologies in expanding the relations between experts and the lay, and the implications for learning and participation for both parties.

Currently two projects are undertaken in Studio 2. Both of these projects, incorporates aspects of how technology mediates relations between experts and lay, in contemporary and historic settings. An important question is the potential of technology to challenge or intervene in such relations of knowledge and learning, for instance by establishing new forms for participation and responsibility in knowledge building. Studio 2 also conducts pilot projects focusing different aspects of how relations between experts and the lay are changing in new technological settings. The purpose for pilot projects is to explore the potential of cases to be developed into multidisciplinary research projects.
