Documental Mobilization

New ways of archiving and classifying Human and Social Sciences

The growth of copying and recording techniques, as demonstrated on the Web, require us to rethink the nature of information and communication, along with the relationship between media and archives. This initiative, entrusted to Maurizio Ferraris, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Turin, explores the conceptual tensions generated by these technologies, along with the new Web-generated links between knowledge, memory and power. The international colloquium 'Total Mobilization: Web and Social Reality', 15-17 October 2015, Paris, was organised by M. Ferraris, E. Terrone, A. Condello, S. Guindani, in partnership with the Iri (Centre Pompidou) and LabOnt (University of Turin).

 

Seminar 2018: Documental Mobilization revolution – From capital to Documental Mobilization

Documental Mobilization, meaning union between the instituted strength of documents and media dynamic, transformed quickly the social word with a power which only equivalent is the capitalist revolution at the beginning of the 19th century. Yet, this shift have not been conceptualized and we are used to read it as an evolution of capitalism, whereas it is actually a radical transformation introducing a discontinuity which characteristics must be analysed.

This seminar is organised by Maurizio Ferraris, in charge of the Documental Mobilization research initiative, Sara Guindani, Enrico Terrone and Angela Condello.

It will be held at the forum library (1st floor) of the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme, 54 bd Raspail, 75006, Paris.
