Inhabiting the Anthropocene 

Inhabiting (and Governing) Group studies the changing forms of human life in the Anthropocene and seeks for the technological and policy solutions to manage them. This groups analyzes how large-scale changes translate into particular problems of life in a given locale. Prominent themes include the new forms of urbanity such as eco-cities and smart cities, changing population structures as manifested in the increasingly aging society, the relationship between mobility system and cultural change, and the issue of human and non-human coexistence. This group’s research is an endeavor to systematically predict and prepare for the potential dangers that both natural and artificial infrastructures would face as a result of global change. Thus, the keywords for this research group include “risk,” “disaster,” and “trust” as well.

    인해비팅 (및 거버닝) 그룹은 인류세를 맞아 빠른 변동을 겪고 있는 인간 삶의 양식에 대한 연구를 수행하고, 이를 효과적으로 관리하기 위한 정책적이고 기술적인 해법을 모색한다. 에코 시티나 스마트 시티 같은 새로운 형태의 도시에 대한 실험, 고령화를 대표로 하는 인구구조 변화에 대한 대응, 모빌리티 시스템이 가져오는 문화 변동, 인간과 비인간(인공지능, 로봇, 동물)의 공생 등 전지구적 변화가 개별 지역에서 구체적이고 일상적인 삶의 문제로 등장하는 현상을 분석하고, 자연 및 인공 인프라가 직면하게 될 위험에 대해 체계적으로 예측하고 대비하려는 시도인 것이다.
