Current Research

The research concerns the role of software and the regulation of urban space, especially in so called "smart cities".

It is an attempt to think of digital technologies as a material and spatial phenomena in order to better grasp the agency and normativity of emerging technologies that mediate between code and urban environments.

Magnus Eriksson wants in particular to study the idea of "smart cities" and the normative structures of that development, both regarding the city and city governance as well as the promises of information technology as agents of social change.
