SFB 1187 ›Medien der Kooperation‹ an der Universität Siegen
Workshop mit Arjun Appadurai (New York University) – “Mediants, Dividuals and the New Horizons of Politics”“
Wednesday, 22 January 2020, 09:00-12:00

This workshop will build on ideas of "mediant" and „dividual" which I have explored in my published work. In particular, I would like to explore the political potential of the idea of the dividual, both to break away from the romantic idea of the individual and to question the idea of the actant. Through these efforts, I will try to show how some form of solidarity politics can emerge in a world in which mediation and finance have decomposed the category of the individual.
