The Age of Sharing? Practices of Sharing in Contemporary Media, Literature and Culture

The concept of sharing has become pervasive in the 21st century. We are encouraged to 'share' our digital data (e.g. facebook) and to participate in the 'sharing industry' (e.g. Airbnb). Moreover, popular self-help literature emphasizes that we should develop healthy intimate relationships through sharing or disclosing our innermost thoughts and feelings. While these are quite diverse practices, the concept of 'sharing' emphasizes a link, endowing them with a positive value. This extraordinary career of the concept 'sharing' has led sociologists such as Nicholas John to dub our contemporary time as an '‘age of sharing'. The practices subsumed under 'sharing', however, have also given rise to controversy.

1818-2018 – the silent revolution: of fears, folly & the female

Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Lisbon

5-6 November 2018

 

In 2018 we celebrate events which took place two hundred years ago: the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the birth of Emily Brontë. While the two events are markedly different, as the former is a tangible work of art and the latter more of a promise of what was to come, both have contributed to challenge and change the conceptions and perceptions of the time, thus performing a silent, subtle revolution in the world of letters.

MORAL MACHINES? THE ETHICS AND POLITICS OF THE DIGITAL WORLD 6–8 March 2019, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, University of Helsinki, Finland With confirmed keynotes from N. Katherine Hayles (Duke University, USA) and Bernard Stiegler (IRI: Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation at the Centre Pompidou de Paris) As our visible and invisible social reality is getting increasingly digital, the question of the ethical, moral and political consequences of digitalization is ever more pressing. Such issue is too complex to be met only with instinctive digiphilia or digiphobia. No technology is just a tool, all technologies mark their users and environments.

It is the aim of the Association to not only place a focus on Australasian Gothic scholarship, but also to build international links with the wider Gothic community as a whole.
