Call for Papers
The relationship of work to technology has long been studied (e.g., Barley, 1986; Orlikowski, 1992; Trist & Bamforth, 1951), from the roboticization of factory lines (e.g., Argote et al., 1983; Grint & Woolgar, 2013; Smith & Carayon, 1995) to the integration of information and computing technology into knowledge work (e.g., Hanseth et al., 2006; Leonardi & Bailey, 2008; Osterlund & Carlile, 2005). As more and more digital technology becomes elemental to modern forms of work, it is sometimes difficult to separate tasks from tools, procedures from platforms. Today, not only is work primarily digital and computational, but it is fast becoming algorithmic with the introduction of artificial intelligence into existing procedures and practices (Brynjolfsson & McAfee, 2014). For instance, radiologists can now leverage artificial intelligence to analyze patients’ scans instead of relying on their trained eyes alone; these machines, using intelligent algorithms, are reported to have a higher rate of tumor recognition than even the most well-trained experts (Aerts, 2017; Prevedello et al., 2017).

Workshop: Equivocal (anthropo)cenes: indigenous ontologies and the ethics of geo-climatic disruptions

Santiago, Chile. November 8-9, 2018

Organized by:
Marcelo González, P. Universidad Católica and CIGIDEN
Manuel Tironi, P. Universidad Católica and CIGIDEN

Keynotes:
Kristina Lyons, University of Pennsylvania
Claudio Millacura, Universidad de Chile
Timothy Neale, Deakin University

The end of the world has begun, and the blame is on us –or at least on some “us”. Floods and droughts, fires and hurricanes, large-scale chemical pollution and a growing loss of biodiversity: human-induced disasters multiply, as this multiplication unveils the disruption of biospheric equilibriums to a threshold of no-return. The world will carry on but, we begin to recognize, it will not be anymore suitable for a humanity that has unleashed the inhuman might of a revengefull Gaia. The “Anthropocene” is how the geosciences has named this agonistic moment in human-nature relations. Continue reading
