Session Abstract

 We grapple with the grand challenge of increasingly mutating and rhizomic ICTs systems as forms of 'power container of modernity' (Giddens) or power-knowledge (Foucault) that can both enable and constrain our ways of thinking and acting in the world.

( Draft) This panel reflects a transdisciplinary conversation between researchers coming out of very different disciplinary paradigms - an engineer, a cognitive scientist, journeyman-sociologists/historians with action orientations and a philosopher. Can we develop develop common language or metaphors? Or in fact, is the problem one that is continual because digital technologies and their effects continue to evolve and impact in as things in themselves as as agents in the world and even reaching comment understandings is a Sisyphean task?

Each of us has written a position statement with ripostes and rejoinders from the others . We have everything in common as humans, but in some ways, our intellectual orientations and limitations fragment us.

What are our intellectual and practical concerns? What can do we bring them together to influence what we think is important?"

Each of us has written a position statement with ripostes and rejoinders from the others [still do be done/worked out]. We have everything in common as humans, but in some ways, our intellectual orientations and limitations fragment us.
