Subjectivity and the Digital Culture
For a while my interests were particularly focused on the claim that the digital culture is leading to the formation of a multiple, fragmented form of subjectivity. I found this claim questionable and explored it in several conference presentations and essays.
This is the text of a lecture delivered at York College exploring the nature of self and subjectivity in the digital culture.
This conference presentation argues that the view of identity presented in the work of Sherry Turkle, Rosanne Stone and Kenneth Gergen is flawed.
A reworked version of the previous essay, now concentrating on the work of Stone and Poster and contrasting it with Daniel Dennett's account of the multiple self, this essay appeared in the Humanities and Technology Review.
