Digitale Kulturen

2021W, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03240

Description

In the course we deal with forms of visual surveillance during the Covid-19 pandemic. We examine historically comparative image, data and media cultures.

Mobility tracking is regarded by health authorities and government officials as a reliable data basis for enforcing political decisions as legitimate. Seen in this way, digital media take over the empirical basis of political action. The disciplinary techniques of state surveillance are migrating into all areas of digital communication and affect mobile media (geo-tracking), stop corona apps (monitoring), smart cities (face recognition, sensor technologies), social media (blaming) and selfies (self-evidence). In a global comparison, I will compare different national strategies and also include non-western countries. In this context, I am investigating the biosurveillance in China, Singapore and Hong Kong (SenseTime, TikTok etc.), the secret service control in Israel and the use of robotics in Tunisia.

 

 

Examination Modalities

It is planned to hold the course in face-to-face mode. The course content is made available on the base's cloud. Active participation in the seminar is desirable in face-to-face mode. In the seminar we use different teaching and learning methods (lecture, discussion, group work, impulse presentations) based on the concepts of agile learning and participatory participation.

Comments

In my lecture, I deal with image-political and media-technological aspects of the data visualizations of mobility, which were used by Internet companies, national governments and health authorities for different purposes in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. What are the consequences of these shifts in the procurement of information in the era of the corona control system? How will Covid-19 change the digital world we live in? Will Covid-19 initiate an authoritarian framing of digital control media? Are push media conquering power in the digital space?
