Lecture Monika Palmberger: »I Would Be Nothing Without My Smartphone«. Refugees’ (Digital) Citizenship from Below
5. Dezember um 18:15 – 20:30 CET
Sending a good-morning greeting with a bouquet of flowers; getting tattoos together; sharing recipes: digital media are crucial for such everyday activities that keep families and friends together when they are separated by forced migration. Validating this, a Syrian woman told Monika Palmberger: »I would be nothing without my smartphone«.
