Titlul prezentării sale este ‘Informational skills and agency on social media’. Iată și rezumatul:

‘Researchers from various disciplines have shown the various detrimental effects of using Social media platforms, mostly by highlighting the decline in the well-being of their users. Complementing these approaches with a perspective drawn from the philosophy of information, I will highlight an additional problematic effect of social media usage, namely how users as informational agents are deprived of informational agency. This talk will propose a concept of informational skills inspired by situated cognition and social epistemology. By linking informational skills with informational agency and digital flourishing, I will examine the limits of Social media platforms as informational environments. I will show that Social media platforms are usually constraining on the informational agency of their users and lead, in the long term, to the deskilling of said users.’

Conferința se va desfășura ȋn limba engleză miercuri, 12 ianuarie, orele 18-20. Detaliile de conectare via Zoom vor fi distribuite tuturor celor ce își indică dorința de participare scriind la adresa andrei.marasoiu@filosofie.unibuc.ro
