Department of Thematic Studies - Technology and Social Change
At tema T we critically analyse both technology’s influence on and the different types of understandings that are constructed around technology in and by society. Our research deals with how social actors create and exploit technology, and how technical change is woven together with cultural patterns, daily life, politics and the economy.

Technology and Social Change is an interdisciplinary research unit focusing on how social actors create and use technology, and how technical change is woven together with cultural patterns, daily life, politics, energy systems, learning, and the economy in history and society.
The objective for TEMA - The Department of Thematic Studies is to pursue excellent research and education at undergraduate and advanced levels relevant to society. Tema aims to provide a major impetus in career development for both future researchers and those who have just entered the field of research
