The digital post. Society, culture and education

The fusion of the digital within the social and technological apparatus appears to be the sign of a wider phenomenon of an overcoming of an experiential condition characterised by an aesthetics of the ephemeral and fragmentary: the multiplication of spaces and times of experience has reached such a level as to be considered an ordinary situation. “We are rather immersed in systems and environments of relations and exchanges, ready to use the different resources that these environments make available to us with respect to the objectives that are proposed or proposed to us, and to assume roles and positions corresponding to what is implied by the use of these resources. The media are everywhere. We ourselves are media. And that is why the media no longer exist”. (Ruggero Eugeni, La condizione postmediale, Brescia, La Scuola, 2015, p.28). From here it is necessary to start a process of reconstruction of new forms of fluidity, able to put aside great divisions and consolidated dichotomies – nature/culture, subject/object, individuality of the subject/conventions of the social context – that have characterised previous times. Overcoming this logic requires new, generative ideas, centred on a ‘human project’, capable of reconstructing the meaning of our daily practices in relation to a ‘homeodynamic world’, available to transformation, open to utopia and real enough to contemplate the dream. The post-digital project is understood here as a complex enterprise, with fluid dynamism, in which the analysis of questions, necessarily open, constitute the necessary ground for a different design of society, culture and education. The post-digital revolution must therefore be accompanied by critical reflections and specific proposals. The conference will be an opportunity to contribute to the international debate and contribute to the definition of new projects.
