Digitox seminar March 2021
Digital disconnection for whom? Global and social inequalities
In a world of global and social inequalities, for whom is digital disconnection a choice or even a possibility? This seminar presents interventions and discusses research challenges regarding inequality and digital disconnection research.
In this Digitox digital seminar, we are happy to have Emiliano Treré (Cardiff University) as an invited guest. He will present research on the COVID-19 lockdown and deliver a provocation on engagement with context-specific inequalities in the Global South, titled Beyond Disconnective Reductionism: Expanding Contexts, Boundaries and Imaginaries of Digital Disconnection Research.
This is followed by a presentation by Mehri S. Agai (University of Bergen, Digitox PhD candidate), who is doing qualitative research on digital disconnection and social inequality amongst young people in Norway.
Karin Fast (University of Oslo, Digitox project) will chair the discussion.
