Gustavo Crembil guest edits Media-N Journal special issue

Associate Professor Gustavo Crembil, in collaboration with Paula Gaetano Adi (RISD), have edited a special issue of the Media-N Journal of the New Media Caucus . “Mestizo Technology: Art, Design, and Technoscience in Latin America” was the proposed editorial framework with the intention of employing a lens merging notions of “mestizaje” and new technologies to scan the development of new media practices distinctive to Latin America; to survey how influences from the global North have been appropriated and adapted to particular needs, resources and interests of Latin American thinkers and makers; and to also challenge traditional dichotomies afflicting perceptions about productions emerging from the global south: western/indigenous; modern/traditional; craft/technology; and big science/small science.

The issue includes an introductory statement by the guest-editors and eleven essays by Latin American scholars, artist and designers.
