*Re: CfP Special issue on Makerspaces*

The Nordic Journal of Information Studies and Cultural Communication
(NTIK) invites submissions that advance the research on makerspaces
culture and design

Design processes are usually conceptualized in terms of creation of
ideas, identification of problems, product constructions, discussion
of concepts, society perspectives, etc. In educational and cultural
institutions and in companies, makerspaces articulate an informal site
for all the elements mentioned, i.e. for creative production promoting
physical as well as digital activities, information sharing, and
engagement with materials, processes, and ideas. A central theme is
how makerspaces may give opportunities for exploring the boundaries
between the physical and digital, between theoretical and practical
knowledge, and between construction and mediation.  Studies on
makerspaces contribute to research fields like ´participatory design´
and ´user-involvement´ with relevance for both IT-development and
changes in cultural as well as educational institutions.  Another
central theme concerns how to establish co-creation understood as a
process where digital technologies, materials, and the interests and
knowledge of the participants mutual re-configure each other. We hope
that this special issue on makerspace will raise important questions
belonging to the field described.  We invite scholars to submit papers
addressing topics that include, but are not limited to, the
aforementioned themes.
