Information, ethics, and sociocultural values

This seminar will discuss the relation of information to ethical and cultural values in spheres such as politics, intellectual freedom (freedom of speech and information access), personal and social identity, documentary authenticity and evidence, cultural heritage and digitalization, and socio-technical classification and knowledge formation.  It will seek to understand the politics and aesthetics of information, its transformation into perception and knowledge, and the ethical problems of human and machine agency involved in this.
