debate 5: the experimental humanities

The question of the experiment (as the basis for knowledge production) is implicated in the question of who and what is recognized as a viable participant in the production of knowledge, in the boundaries of what is understood as “public space” and the politicized distinction of knowledge producers and subjects of the experiment. In her contribution to the debate on experimental humanities, “Experimental Inhabitations”, Sara Morais dos Santos Bruss argues that an emancipatory notion of the experiment lies in an experimental practice that affirms embodied genealogies within the digital and plays with the multiplicities these necessitate, resulting – possibly – in a democratization of the “private” space of digital infrastructures.
