Information, technology, and connections (INTER)
What does it mean to be human in connection to technology? In INTER we approach information studies from the humanities taking a critical stance on the connections between information, technology, and humans. We are interested in the practical implications of the continued digitalization of everyday life, society, media, and culture.
The researchers in the section investigate the interplay between information technologies and humans; including new understandings that emerge and become visible in new practices, cultural and otherwise. INTER focuses on the ethical and conceptual challenges and transformations that we must deal with as individuals and as a society. We study digital forms of organization, algorithmic structures, surveillance and privacy, information, and data from the outset of information studies including historical, philosophical, sociological, and cultural perspectives.
Themes and theoretical approaches: datafication, digital media and culture, information analysis, information ethics, philosophy of information, information history, critical data studies, organization studies, platform studies, privacy and surveillance, game studies and gamification, and knowledge organization.
