Andrew Feenberg speaks on ‘Agency and the Internet’

Andrew Feenberg, Canada research chair in philosophy of technology, University of Vancouver

Will speak on ‘Agency and the Internet’ on June 25th at 4pm in Room 3.3, Roscoe Building, University of Manchester

Professor Feenberg is the leading exponent of critical theory within the field of technology studies. His many books include ‘Transforming Technology’ (2002), ‘Heidegger and Marcuse’ (2005) and ‘Questioning Technology’ (1999). The talk will develop his idea of ‘democratic rationalisation’ in connection with digital networks. It will be of interest to sociologists, philosophers, political economists and anyone with an interest in the social forces shaping contemporary technology.
