PACT locates itself at the intersection of Feminist, Humanist, and Technologist frameworks within the Arts. It is interested in examining the infrastructures of future justice, collectives of social organisation, and politics of subjective care-making in order to create a future worth fighting for.
Through education and research, the professorship seeks to create multiple communities of stakeholders through activating, initiating, and implementing discursive and collaborative projects aimed at creating other kinds of digital futures. The professorship thus works with academic university partners, human rights and social justice civil society organisations, art-technology collaboratories, emerging technology governance and regulation companies, and global partnerships and consortia focused on planetary humane futures.
The professorship offers itself as a capacity development and collective agency brave space that identifies digital problems as human problems, and pays particular attention to the disenfranchised, historically marginalised, and socially disadvantaged communities to develop capacity and create conditions for collective agency. The ambition of the professorship is also to connect and work more closely with partners that espouse feminist, queer, postcolonial politics to amplify their presence and ownership in building other kinds of digital futures.
