A - Infrastructures
Contemporary and historical digital media involve and combine cooperative tools, platforms and infrastructures. Project area A of the CRC ‘Cooperative Media’ therefore focuses on practices of infrastructuring.
The Culture of Telecommunication Standardisation in the Tensions of the Digital and Neoliberal ‘Double Revolution’ since the 1980s
B - Publics
Digital data and infrastructures constitute specific publics. With its claim to pluralize the concept of publics, project area B of the CRC ‘Cooperative Media’ analyzes intimate, fragmented, staggered, and global publics. Central here is the cooperative production of mediated and data-driven publics.
P - Praxeology
Project area P reevaluates the ethnomethodological understanding of praxeology. The three subprojects “Media of Praxeology I-III” contribute to the historicization of Science and Technology Studies as well as to the reflection of methods in Media Studies and Social Sciences. The subprojects therefore complement and support project areas A and B.
The program modules INF and MGK expand the research program by integrating the development of digital research infrastructures (INF) and by offering a structured training program for doctoral students of the CRC in form of an integrated Research Training Group (MGK).
