Hanne’s research focuses on investigating novel ways of achieving and promoting political engagement, as well as raising political awareness. In particular, the work looks at the application of current information and entertainment technologies, such as digital games, gamification and social media in order to engage the public with politics and political causes.
Between October 2017 and March 2018, Hanne will use this impact grant to:
This project will directly create impact for the workshop participants by making them aware of the possibilities of using games to engage wider audiences with their individual goals, and equipping them with the necessary knowledge to self-determine their individual requirements, which they can then pursue with developers.
The ideation card deck will achieve further impact by being promoted as a tool that interested groups can use on their own. Finally, the project will create a network for groups who have an interest in and see the need for political engagement and political education of society, by creating a knowledge hub in the form of a website.
