Theorizing Power in Digital Society: Rethinking Power, Networks, Social Capital and Interaction

Ort am HIS | Beginn: 09.06.2022 19:00 Uhr

What makes digital platform operators in general and social network site operators in particular so powerful? Why do governments increasingly delegate governing tasks to AI and other digital firms? How does power itself transform in digital society? How does it rely on new ways to bind together the actions and consciousnesses of different individuals into something bigger? What makes algorithmic power unique, and how can it be resisted? In his lecture, Prof. Ori Schwarz will offer answers to these questions based on his recent book Sociological Theory for Digital Society: The Codes that Bind Us Together. In the book Prof. Schwarz shows why and how core concepts of sociological theory such as power, interaction, social capital, social networks and labour must be rethought and readapted to account for the new sociotechnical realities of digital society. The lecture will demonstrate how new conceptualizations offered in the book may help us understand digital governance and regulation under platform capitalism.
