To EVOKE is to call forth, to stimulate, and to draw intellect and passion together.
The EVOKE Lab and Studios combine social science, technology, art, and design to create scholarship at the intersection of Emerging Values, Ontologies, and Knowledge Expression as ways of knowing. What are the values we design into our technologies, and how do technologies allow us to express our values? How do we name objects and describe their relationships, and what are the consequences for the design and redesign of our sociotechnical systems? Where and when does information become knowledge, and how do we build and curate the infrastructures that account for the ever-broadening range of ways we express and share our knowledge with the world?
