Category Archives: Virtual panel: Digital cosmopolitanism
The virtual panel, which will be launched on 30 January 2014, will include a discussion of the ‘Digital Enlightenment’ that began with the growth of the Internet in the aftermath of the Cold War. Scholars contributing to this panel are based at different institutions in Moscow, Boston, and UCL, and will be invited to speak particularly about the linkages between the communications revolution and changes in political subjectivity (i.e. discussions of the digital era as the end or transformation of the nation-state, the idea of a transnational vs. fragmented digital memory, etc.). Conference participants are also expressly invited to contribute ideas to the virtual panel.
Another section of the panel will include a crowdsoarced conceptual history of seven keywords using video and audio recordings: cosmopolitanism; war; world; empire; republic; city; and home.
