"Persons of Interest: The Status of the Self in Digital Cultures": Andreas Bernard in conversation with Alexander Galloway. March 6 at 6:30 pm at the Deutsches Haus at NYU.

What is striking about today’s methods of self-representation and self-perception – the profiles of social media but also the various locational functions on smartphones or the bodily measurements of the “quantified-self movement” – is the fact that they all derive from methods of criminology, psychology, or psychiatry that were conceived at various points since the end of the nineteenth century. The conversation between Andreas Bernard (Leuphana University of Lüneburg) and Alexander Galloway (NYU) will attempt to trace back these genealogies and thus present the criminological fundaments of contemporary subjectivity.

Location and time:
