    Sammanfattning : Atmospheric and Geological Entanglements is a study of contemporary North American ecopoetry, a poetry which is characterized by a negotiation or subversion of established cultural representations of nature, and by a re-deployment of poetic forms such as lyrical poetry, pastoral and elegy. The studied poets experiment with form and question well-established categories such as human and nature, instead emphasizing connections between the human, other organisms, and inorganic matter.

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns the roles and responsibilities of designers when we design workshops with democratic ambitions. Reflecting on my experiences from making co-design workshops for citizen participation to support sustainable urban development in municipal planning processes, I inquire into designers’ societal entanglements and explore these from democratic, social, political and designerly perspectives.

    Sammanfattning : Using social media and norm-breaking material as an empirical touchstone this thesis elaborates, investigates and explores the entangled relationships between humans and technology in social media settings. Guided by uncomfortable, emotional and bodily online sharing the thesis gives voice to stories that are seldom heard, by people whose lives are rarely spoken of. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Structural Aspects of Peroxide Crosslinking of Polyethylene

    Författare :Annika Smedberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :poly ethylene-co-divinylsiloxane ; network; poly ethylene-co-1; peroxide; crosslinking; LDPE; topography; 9-decadiene ; entanglements;

    Sammanfattning : Despite major developments in the ways of polymerising ethylene (the processes as well as the catalysts) the use of polyethylene is still restricted in several applications due to its low melting point. This shortcoming can in some areas be overcome by the introduction of crosslinks between the polymer chains. LÄS MER
