The Dark Side of the DigitalA Center for 21st Century Studies Conferencehttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/307228501/21logoTwitter.jpgstart

8/1/2012Dark Side of the Digital Conference announcedAt least since the 1980s, the digital has been the occasion for enthusiastic, often utopian, dreams. In almost every area of human and nonhuman endeavor—finance, consumer culture, technoscience, education, medicine, communication, or the arts—digital technologies have been heralded as revolutionary if not redemptive. But there has always been a dark side to such digital enthusiasm—dark places that scholars of the digital tend to overlook as they illuminate new fields and paths; dark practices that intensify social inequalities and accelerate environmental destruction; and dark politics that often remain obscure to global media users. Devastating labor conditions at factories like FoxConn in China are exacerbated by the appetite for next generation iPhones or iPads. Securitization and data mining are fueled by the eagerness of contemporary media users to share their search patterns, location, and affective labor. And the environmental destruction from disposing the hazardous waste of still functioning but outmoded media devices, or mining for the precious metals that the continued production of these new devices require, is mostly invisible to the consumers of new tablets, mobile phones, HD monitors, and netbooks.http://www.c21uwm.com/digitaldarkside/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/logo2.pngLogo designed by Milo Miller

5/2/2013 9:00:00Autonets Workshop with micha cárdenas The Autonets workshop will engage participants in a discussion—using Theater of the Oppressed, dance, and performance exercises—of how we can form local networks of autonomy and solidarity in order to create community-based responses to violences, which are personal, gendered, or state sponsored. Join us for a three-hour workshop that will culminate in a performance where we will use Theater of the Oppressed to embody community based responses to violence. The workshop will invite participants to consider these questions: what kinds of violence you face on a daily basis and how can we respond as a community to prevent these forms of violence, with or without digital technologies. No experience is necessary to participate in the workshop and performance, as both rely on what our bodies already know.http://vimeo.com/43213227
