Networks, Systems, Them, Me, Us

Lightning rods

Wednesday 28 January 2015, 5.15PM

How might I/we better inhabit the current, comparatively thin theoretical space between the individual and society?

How does being part of a network relate, or not, to being part of a system?

What theoretical and methodological approaches are involved in thinking systemically or via networks?

How do these things generate, or capture, an experience of connectivity?

And how have ideas of subjectivity pitted against, or aligned with, intersubjectivity been differently inflected across historical periods?
