Affekt Macht Netz

Auf dem Weg zu einer Sozialtheorie der Digitalen Gesellschaft

Funder: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and FU Berlin
Edited by: Rainer Mühlhoff, Anja Breljak,  and Jan Slaby

Shit storms, hate speech or viral videos that promote clicking, linking, sharing: The linked society is driven by affects. The contributions included in this book examine the media-technological developments of our times and explore them from the perspective of a critical affect and social philosophy. They indicate that social media and digital platforms are not only spaces of exchange but also create affect economies - and therein lies their power. By creating new modalities of social interaction and therefore by determining the forms of articulation, they also change the political topography. Including a contribution by Antonio Negri.
