Abstract

The aim of the course is to introduce the emerging anthropological perspective on the digital and thus offer new critical optics in the field of digital humanities. Rather than looking merely at how the digital may be used in research, the course asks what is the sociopolitical world that digital technologies produce. The course charts the workings of the digital platforms, devices, data and infrastructure in their effects and new forms of relations of power in the contexts of biopolitics, new media, political technologies and sovereignty, economy and corporations, everyday services, subjectivity and corporeality, including coming of age, death and personal identity. Rethinking digital social and political domains also presupposes rethinking research ethics and practices of digital ethnography. The course addresses key debates and advances in these fields.
