Rome, Porto, Paris, São Paulo
The contemporary ecological cultures, sustainability practices, and digital activism movements that, through ways of non-institutional conflictuality carried out by interactions with social networks, marked the continuing protests at all latitudes, are the expression of a new type of social action no longer directed to the external, and not only stems from a practice caused by an informative and technical conditioning.
The II International Congress on Net-Activism aims to discuss this new kind of inter-action and conflict, indicating by “net-activism” the set of collaborative actions that result from the synergy between actors that are not only humans, but also of different natures. Therefore, the connective character of such inter-actions and conflictualities that reunite biodiversity, informative circuits, devices, informational territorialities, and human-beings, presents itself not only as the digital expansion of participation and deliberative parliaments but, according to this view, as the constitution of a new type of ecology (eko-logos) that indicates the need for redefinition of the very ideas of social and action beyond their anthropomorphic forms and policy.
The Congress will take place in the cities of Roma, Porto, Paris and São Paulo between October and November 2015. Showcasing contributions of renowned international researchers, such trans-disciplinary debate aims to promote, expand and consolidate the reflection upon this prevailing and thought-provoking discussion, transforming itself into a key forum within the field.
