13 June 2024 , 10:00 - 18:00 — Permalink

There is on-going public criticism and concern around practices and techniques of identification on digital media and the mass collection of personal data by platforms. But what is ‘digital identity’ and how is it mutually produced by digital companies and legal regulations?

The workshop is intended to address legal issues relating to targeted advertising and, in particular, the question of when data used for advertising purposes loses its personal relation (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR), i.e. becomes anonymous, so that the GDPR no longer applies to it. 

Civil identity includes data such as name, home address, date of birth and other classic markers. For the advertising industry, however, other identity-forming factors are more important, such as income, hobbies/interests, approximate residential area, mobility data or data about users’ end devices. Against this background, the question arises as to when data relating to such a “digital identity” loses its personal reference to the extent that it is considered anonymized.

Chronophotogrammetry: Predigital sensor networks in alpine glacier observation

The habilitation project investigates the media history of glacier observation and surveying in the European Alps. A central chapter in this history is the utilization of photographic surveying techniques for the spatial and temporal mapping of the often inaccessible ice masses in the late 19th century. The photogrammetric precision measurement provided an essential contribution to the documentation and research of climate change and the development of analytical photogrammetry as the basis for the digital remote sensing regimes that today automatically document environmental changes from a distance. At the center of interest are the operations explored in this context to make glaciers and photographs calculable.

Working Group "Scales of Cooperation": Kick-off

The 3rd phase (2024-2027) of the SFB 1187 Media of Cooperation focuses on sensor media’s scaling performance. The CRC’s research program covers the entire spectrum of this scaling performance, from the level of the body and micro-interaction to distributed situations of sensor data, transnational surveillance, and global data infrastructures.

“Scales of Cooperation” discusses the CRC’s cross-scale understanding of cooperation, starting from micro-situational cooperation practices to the cooperation of transnational infrastructures with their data and data practices. The SFB aims to develop a media theory of this cooperatively composed scaling performance, leading to a final conference and publication of the CRC in 2027.

To this end, the SFB will launch a first lecture series in the summer semester of 2024, which will examine different scalings of the claim to sovereignty of various actors from the local to the global level—starting from individual media situations to the political-regulatory level of the European Union and beyond.
