This seminar will look into the status of digital society, digital living, and issues that result from such processes of digitality. Participants will be observing what happens online (how we interact, how we display ourselves, how we maintain our privacy, how we shop, we we date, how we hate, how we rate, how we evaluate, etc.), will be reading articles, book chapters and books about the issues that are at stake (What does digitality do to us and to society?), and will be developing research questions of their own. The perspective of digital media ethics will play an important role in answering such questions: What is a flourishing life under the conditions of digitality?
To be able to answer this question, you will have to read at least *some* of the literature relevant to the field. Below please find a list for you to start dipping into discussions of digitality.
In the winter semester 2017/18 we will be investigating whether or how the everyday social practice of 'whatsapping' makes people happy. If this may sound underwhelming at first, think again. Whatsapping is at the heart of social relations among members of family, friends, workmates, acquaintances, and outlines how we deal with other people in digitality. This social practice may therefore contribute to our happy, flourishing lives, or perhaps not. Other digital practices are at stake here as well (e.g., facebooking, instagramming, tindering, etc.). This is where things really get 'complicated', and we'll research exactly that. Brace yourself for at least a dip into social theory, Aristotelian ethics, and of course applied social research methods.
English Title: Digitality and Society
English Abstract: In this seminar participants will acquaint themselves with relevant theories and current thinking on digital society, digital living and digitality in general, and will learn to develop critical perspectives.
