Partners in a Trading Zone – Development of a trading zone between ethnology and computer science in the context of embroidery

In the digital transformation, there is a danger that disciplines will be forgotten. We are pursuing the question of how a trading zone can be created in which actors from the disciplines of anthropology and computer science meet and work on joint, transdisciplinary products, including teaching units and further training courses.
