What is Techilosophy?

Techilosophy explores multi-cultural practices considered traditional, ancient and often hidden, that are more relevant than ever today to better understand our development of and engagement with science and technology and uses the arts (especially different forms of narrative) to do this.

Interested in breaking down boundaries between the arts, humanities (e.g. history, philosophy) and social sciences and the sciences, technology, engineering, math and medicine.

About Keisha

Poet, Researcher, Web Scientist

Currently a Research Fellow for the Shaping Interdisciplinary Practices in Europe (Shape-ID) European Commission funded project at Trinity College Dublin’s Long Room Hub Arts & Humanities Research Institute where I am developing a knowledge framework/taxonomy to support collaboration between and integration of Arts, Humanities and Social Science (AHSS) disciplines and with Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medicine (STEMM) disciplines. I have a PhD and an MSc in Web Science from the University of Southampton, an MA in International Relations from the Universiteit van Amsterdam in the Netherlands and a BSc in Sociology from the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago.

I have also held fellowships with other internet technology related international organisations and have work for and advised local, regional and international organisations focused on the intersection of technology, data and society.

Growing up in the multicultural Caribbean twin-island country, Trinidad and Tobago, has been fundamental to my appreciation of varying forms of cultural practices and the ability for different types of cultures to inform each other and support helpful connections that have the potential to benefit all.
