14 - 20 September 2023
Câmpu Cetăţii, Mureş County

Cordless Telephone Summer School is organized at Câmpu Cetăţii, Mureş County by in partnership with the National Institute for Research and Development in Materials Physics and Dezarticulat.

It is intended for a mixed group of students from both STEM fields and the humanities who share an interest in the critical study of technology and in understanding how technology works. Our goal is to bring together different perspectives from these two spheres of intellectual life, usually separated by an artificial divide, viewing the technology through a philosophical, social, and cultural lens while maintaining a rigorous understanding of its workings.
