This summer school, held in Maastricht University from 23-25 June 2020, will revolve around the twin pillars of Design Thinking and Maker Culture. A mixture of lectures, hands-on workshops, and Lightening Challenges will provide participants with the skills, theories, and methods to take a more creative, proactive, and empowered approach to research design, to meaning making in modalities beyond the textual, and in exploring what humanities students can bring to discussions to solve the grand challenges of our time.
The summer school will start a month in advance with an online course that will introduce the themes of the summer school.
