7th Navigating Knowledge Landscapes’ Annual Conference
Dark Sides of Digital Societies
May 24-25, 2023; Hochschule Fulda | Fulda University of Applied Sciences, Germany
The Navigating Knowledge Landscapes (NKL) research network has employed the metaphor of ‘Knowledge Landscapes’ to examine particular digital constellations. In the 7th Annual NKL Conference the topic is on ‘Dark Sides of Digital Societies’. Both come in plural and may encompass phenomena such as permanent surveillance, the loss of privacy, digital hate and violence, cybercrime, cyberwarfare, technostress, “digital dementia” and addiction to digital technologies, disinformation campaigns, the disruption of journalism, information overload and the erosion of expertise to name but a few.
The aim of the conference is to engage with the topics from different perspectives and disciplines, compare various cases and to start thinking about possible approaches or answers to the dark sides of digital technologies. We are also interested in bringing academics, researchers and diverse practitioners together, so they are all encouraged to participate. The opening Keynote will be held by Stuart Allan, Professor of Journalism and Communication, Cardiff University.
