    Experimental Practices. Humanities and Arts in the Process of Constructing Knowledge for the Data-based Society
    (2018) Krawczak, Michał; Jelewska, Agnieszka
    Accelerating progress in the development of technological tools, the achievements of the sciences, and above all the ways of collecting and modelling data, are significantly changing the mechanisms of knowledge construction. The humanities, together with related artistic-research practices, are becoming a crucial part of the process of analyzing and interpreting such data, with a focus on their social and cultural impact. Thus, the humanities have been entering into synergic relations with science and technology.

    The Spectrality of Nuclear Catastrophe: The Case of Chernobyl
    (2018) Krawczak, Michał; Jelewska, Agnieszka
    The paper is a presentation of our research focused on the ecological disaster caused by the explosion of the nuclear power plant reactor in Chernobyl in 1986, in terms of its social, cultural and artistic context. We apply the concepts of hyperobject (Morton) and hauntology (Derrida), and autoethnographic method (Adams, Jones, Ellis), in an attempt to reveal human and nonhuman agencies in the description of the catastrophe’s long-term cultural consequences. In the autoethnographic and investigative-artistic part of our research we analyse our interactive installation, Post-Apocalypsis (2015), but also historical facts and private narratives. The notion of hyperobject in connection with the autoethnographic methods and investigative-artistic part of our research serves to trace the process of displacing phenomena, facts and private narratives about the Chernobyl accident in the context of time and space. The concept of hauntology enabled us to go beyond the uncovering of recurring cultural, political, social micronarrations and fear about nuclear energy in Poland.
