In Abstimmung mit den Referentinnen und Referenten versuchen wir auf dieser Seite Mitschnitte der Beiträge, der von uns organisierten Veranstaltungen dauerhaft zugänglich zu machen. Unterhalb der DigiDem-Podcasts findet sich zudem eine kleine Sammlung von Podcasts die wir allgemein empfehlen und die regelmäßig Themen behandeln, die im Kontext der demokratietheoretischen Digitalisierungsforschung von Relevanz sind.


Nicolas Suzor: A new social contract for the digital age

This episode contains a talk given by Nicolas Suzor about the need for a new social contract in the digital age and the responsibilities of platforms.  Suzor argues that if we want to confront contemporary problems like hate speech, disinformation, censorship and so on, we need to design a positive vision of the net, in which human rights are strengthened. If we care about the future of our shared social spaces the „lawless rule of tech“ must be stopped.

 


Mareile Kaufmann: Hacking as a Practice of Disputing Online Surveillance

In this episode we present a talk given by former Weizenbaum fellow Mareile Kaufmann on the topic of “Hacking as a practice of disputing online surveillance”. Her talk draws attention to hacking practices that interrogate the diverse faces of online surveillance. Instead of portraying hacking as a simple counterculture she seeks to complicate dichotomies of power vs. resistance, online vs. offline and looks at the back-and-forth negotiation character of hacking practices.

 


Vincent August: The Rise of Network Ideas: From Cybernetics to Governance

In this episode our former fellow Vincent August poses the question why we describe our societies in terms of networks. He reveals how social and political thought deliberately enforced cybernetic network ideas to re-shape the way we think about society and politics. He argues that this technological narrative and the associated concepts of complexity, self-regulation and network governance have been extremely influential ever since although its roots in cybernetics have rarely been acknowledged.

 


Matthias Kettemann: Die normative Ordnung des Internets

In dieser Episode präsentieren wir einen Vortrag von Matthias Kettemann (Hans-Bredow-Institut) über die normative Ordnung des Internets. Wie das Zusammenspiel unterschiedlicher Normen im Einzelnen aussieht und wie die Technik, die wir benutzen, von den Normen der Ordnung geprägt ist, diesen Fragen widmet sich Matthias Kettemann in seinem Vortrag. Als Beispiele dienen ihm unter anderem das Phänomen der Desinformation und das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz.

 


Andrew Sullivan: Building a stronger IGF

This episode contains a talk given by Andrew Sullivan, president and CEO of the Internet Society, about the multistakeholder model of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). Sullivan introduces the multistakeholder approach as the logical consequence of the organizational structure of the internet and gives some advice on how it will continue to work in the future.

 


Christoph Raetzsch: New Infrastructures of Publics and the Circulation of Communicative Objects

In this episode Christoph Raetzsch drafts an infrastructural perspective on the public sphere through the concept of communicative objects. Instead of the normative approach on the technological and socio-cultural formation of public communication, the concept is intended to question the importance of journalism as a central agent of the public and overcome the normative distinction between public and private communication.
