There are strong arguments for considering the world’s speech practices as a continuum rather than as a series of discrete languages, the establishment of the latter very often being a political as much as a linguistic process.

Discussion, 26 Jun 2019, 19:30

Thinking about technological changes or ‘revolutions’ is often marked by a presentist, ahistorical mode of thinking and debate. The tropes mobilized in contemporary discussion about ‘digitalization’ and its technologies are usually technicist, innovation- or even disruption-oriented, both in their affirmative and in their critical guises.

Organized by Centre for Digital Cultures of Leuphana University Lüneburg in cooperation with the ICI Berlin
