Data Bodies, Smart Bodies and Sensible Bodies:
Posthuman Corporeality in the Digitally Mediated City
Friday, March 29, 2019 · Noon - 1 PM
Gillian Rose, British Academy Fellow & Professor of Human Geography at the University of Oxford
This talk will explore some of the implications of the digital mediation for the bodies assembled in digitally mediated urban spaces. What forms of embodiment are being made visible in these digitally mediated cities, and how? Drawing on recent work on the visualisation of the so-called 'smart cities,' the lecture will suggest the scale and pervasiveness of digital imagery now means that notions of 'representation' have to be rethought. The lecture will explore some of the implications of this shift for both theory and method as well as critique.
