Localising Philosophy, Democratising Technology – School Transitions

Activity: Other activity typesSchools engagement


Localising Philosophy, Democratising Technology is an educational project run between the Scottish Centre for Continental Philosophy and the School of Education and Social Work at the University of Dundee.

​The project draws on research in philosophy of technology emerging from the Centre, which it focuses and opens up through creative use of a radio broadcast by Walter Benjamin. The broadcast is about a famous event that occurred near Dundee: the Tay Bridge Disaster.

For this phase of the project, a Scottish secondary school cluster invited the researchers in to schools to support P7 pupils with their transition into secondary education, using the Benjamin broadcast as the stimulus.
