Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

In this course, we explore Stockholm from a history of technology perspective. The course is ”mobile” and takes us to a number of places that rest on some of Stockholm's best preserved secrets. The course activities take as their point of departure ”place-based learning” and include, among other things, city walks, digital group work in the field, photo walks and creative writing assignments in connection with these. This creates a frame for discussion and analysis of technical-historical events that have shaped the urban landscape we see in today's Stockholm.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

-       - Give an account of important aspects of Stockholm's history of technology.

-       - Describe in writing and photographically how Stockholm's history of technology has contributed to shape the city we see today.

-       - Critically review historical statements about Stockholm and its emergence.
