Dr. Julia Pohle
from the Berlin Social Science Center will give the presentation "Politik des Digitalen - eine feldtheoretische Retrospektive [Politics of the Digital - a Field Theoretical Retrospective]" at our lecture series "Leibniz Media Lunch Talks
from 12:00 until 13:15 pm. A short introduction will be given by PD Dr. Matthias Kettemann
and Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt
About the Presentation
Is digital policy an independent policy field? The field-theoretically based retrospective of internet political episodes from the 1980s to the present shows that this question is politically relevant. Whether the Internet and digitisation are perceived as a sub-issue of economic or security policy or as a separate area of regulation influences political goals, actors and disputes.
