Lecture series im Wintersemester 2021/2022

Digital technologies are altering existing economic activities and creating new ones with implications for diverse geographies of economy. This lecture series unpacks some of the core operations of such “digital economies” from the coordination of platforms to the flows of data, together with considering the degree to which such technologies alter everyday geographies of, for example, consumption, work and mobility. Rather than considering digital technologies and their economies as either uniquely transformative or distinct from other aspects of socio-economic life, the speakers in this lecture series each carefully interrogate the ways economic activities take on different “digital” dimensions and with what consequences.

Die Veranstaltung findet in virtueller Form (14 Uhr c.t.) statt. Die entsprechenden Zugangsdaten sind im Vorlesungsverzeichnis unter folgendem Eintrag abrufbar: Ringvorlesung: Digital economies.
