Greg Nijs is sociologist, researcher, curator, as well as guest lecturer at the Printmaking Dept. at ENSAV La Cambre.
Bringing together social research and collaborations with artists and designers, his interests revolve around issues of human and other-than-human entanglements, participation, experience, affect and cognition in the design and use of urban environments, other/ed knowledge practices, and questions of the urban, nature, and technology. In his approach, he draws on a range of social scientific sources such as science and technology studies (STS), design studies, multispecies studies, cognitive sciences, HCI, pragmatism, and the like. In 2018, he joined the multi-disciplinary action-research group Urban Species.
