O artigo transita entre as ideias de “quadratura do ser” de Martin Heidegger, “atores em rede” de Bruno Latour, “atopos e formas comunicativas do habitar” de Massimo di Felice e “inorgânico” de Mario Perniola para contextualizar as narrativas, acadêmicas e ficcionais, criadas a partir da revolução tecnológica e expansão das redes digitais. O objetivo central é o reconhecimento dos recursos linguísticos utilizados, como metáforas, comparações e analogias, para expressão dos jogos sociais recriados em conexão com atores humanos e não-humanos. Ressalta-se também a necessidade da criação de novos conceitos, paradigmas, léxicos e “sentires” diante das transformações sociais dos ecossistemas comunicacionais e informacionais.

Excerpt from the documentary mini-series by Richard Dawkins: "The Genius of Charles Darwin." 2008
Dawkins builds to the point that just because you have several "versions" of history, does not mean they are each inherently equal in validity.
Best part of the series, in my opinion. If just for the lines "Science works. Planes fly. Magic carpets and broomsticks don't. Gravity's not a version of the truth. It *is* the truth. Anyone who doubts it is invited to jump out of a tenth floor window."
Bruno Latour | On Not Joining the Dots || Radcliffe Institute

Donna Haraway: "From Cyborgs to Companion Species"
Donna Haraway presented her lecture as the 2003-2004 Avenali Chair in the Humanities at the Townsend Center for the Humanities, UC Berkeley. Haraway is a prominent theorist of the relationships between people and machines, and her work has incited debate in fields as varied as primatology, philosophy, and developmental biology. Haraway's The Cyborg Manifesto, first published in 1985, is now taught in undergraduate classes at countless universities and has been reprinted or translated in numerous anthologies in North America, Japan, and Europe.
Talk by Bruno Lastour with the title: "Why Gaia is not the Globe – and why our future depends on not confusing the two."

From Networks to Modes of Existence // Professor Bruno Latour
Seminar: "From Networks to Modes of Existence"
Die Albertus-Magnus-Professur wurde an der Universität zu Köln im Gedenken an den mittelalterlichen Universalgelehrten Albertus Magnus (1193 bis 1280) eingerichtet, der von 1248 bis 1254 in Köln am Generalstudium der Dominikaner lehrte.
Als einer der Begründer der Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie zählt Bruno Latour zu den heutzutage einflußreichsten Denkern im Bereich der Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften, der Anthropologie sowie der Wissenschaftstheorie und -soziologie. Latour untersucht in seinem weitgespannten Werk, das auf zahlreichen Feldstudien basiert, die rhetorischen Strategien und technischen Artefakte, die bei der Konstruktion wissenschaftlicher Tatsachen am Werk sind. Technik und Natur sowie das Soziale sind in einem Netzwerk wechselseitiger Zuschreibungen von Eigenschaften und Handlungspotentialen miteinander verbunden. In seinen Büchern untersucht er die Auswirkungen seiner Wissenschaftsstudien auf verschiedene Felder des Sozialen, der Religion und der Anthropologie, sowie der Umweltpolitik. Unter den zahllosen Auszeichnungen finden sich neben fünf Ehrendoktoraten eine Anzahl namhafter Wissenschaftspreise, darunter 2013 den Holberg Memorial Prize. 2013 hielt er die Gifford Lectures und 2014 die Tanner Lectures.

The coloniality of power is a concept interrelating the practices and legacies of European colonialism in social orders and forms of knowledge, advanced in postcolonial studies and Latin American subaltern studies, most prominently by Anibal Quijano. It identifies and describes the living legacy of colonialism in contemporary societies in the form of social discrimination that outlived formal colonialism and became integrated in succeeding social orders. The concept identifies the racial, political and social hierarchical orders imposed by European colonialism in Latin America that prescribed value to certain peoples/societies while disenfranchising others. Quijano argues that the colonial structure of power resulted in a caste system, where Spaniards were ranked at the top and those that they conquered at the bottom due to their different phenotypic traits and a culture presumed to be inferior. This categorization resulted in a persistent categorical and discriminatory discourse that was reflected in the social and economic structure of the colony, and that continues to be reflected in the structure of modern postcolonial societies. Maria Lugones expands the definition of coloniality of power by noting that it imposes values and expectations on gender as well, in particular related to the European ranking of women as inferior to men. The concept was also expanded upon by Ramón Grosfoguel, Walter Mignolo, Sylvia Wynter, and Nelson Maldonado-Torres. Quijano's work on the subject "had wide repercussions among Latin American postcolonial scholars in the North American academy."
Coloniality of power takes three forms: systems of hierarchies, systems of knowledge, and cultural systems.
The systems of hierarchies posited by Quijano are systems based on racial classification and difference. Quijano writes that the creation of race was a calculated creation by European and American colonialists. In this racial structure inferiority and superiority was ascribed based on phenotypes and skin colors, what colonialists claimed to be innate biological traits. This system was the outcome of a Eurocentric view that reinforced the justification for the domination of Europeans, overriding the previously used gender-based domination systems. As Lugones points out, however, the gender-based domination system did not disappear, but was integrated into the race-based hierarchical domination system. The importance of the systems of hierarchies was not merely symbolic, but was instead economic. A racial division of labor was built around the hierarchies created, resulting in a system of serfdom for the majority of native people. Existing differences were exploited in the formation of these hierarchies. Quijano (p. 536) notes that: "In some cases, the Indian nobility, a reduced minority, was exempted from serfdom and received special treatment owing to their roles as intermediaries with the dominant race... However, blacks were reduced to slavery."

About the Conference:
With the coming of what we’re calling ‘pervasive internet access’ is there evidence that the quality of our life experiences are becoming attenuated and fragmented, undergoing mutations which point to changes in what it means to be human?
Does the capture, classification and use by businesses of Big Data yielded by our Internet lives have a legitimate role in adding to consumer convenience and choice; and at what point does this ‘reality mining’ bring unacceptable violations of privacy?
Does the combined use of these technologies in the workplace risk overwhelming employees with panoptic regimes of surveillance which may not only be an affront to their human dignity, but also obstacles to human creativity and so, ironically, enemies of the very employee productivity which between them the systems are meant to enhance?
"Why It Matters" is a new Usable Knowledge video series where faculty reflect on how their work addresses the compelling questions and challenges in education.

O demônio de Maxwell foi um experimento mental proposto por James Clerk Maxwell em 1872 e ficou sem solução por quase 90 anos. Enquanto o paradoxo era minuciosamente estudado por cientistas de todo o mundo, um novo campo de estudos surgiu: a Teoria da Informação. É graças à Teoria da Informação que hoje temos o que podemos chamar de computação moderna.
