Summer School: Black mirror/ Mythologies of the Future. Anthropotechnics, biopolitics, posthumanism (T. Todorov)

Wednesday 26.6.2019 – Friday 5.7.2019

Τhe course explores the mythologies of the future in the age of digital identities, posthumanism and the rise of artificial intelligence. Episodes from the Black Mirror TV series are taken as a starting point and as fictional or semi fictional examples of interpretation. The famous series tackles key issues of contemporary society shaped by the rise of new technologies, media and extensions of man. The main topics dealt by the course revolve around the problems of anthropotechincs, biopolitics and posthumanism. Focusing on different, mostly dystopian anxieties of the contemporary Western world, the course also tries to track the possible social and political consequences of the new techniques of producing, breeding and controlling people (anthropotechnics).

Some of the key authors discussed in the course include: Michel Foucault, Jean Baudrillard, Guy Debord, Marshall McLuhan, Ray Kurzweil, Peter Sloterdijk.

Topics:

1. The roots of Black Mirror: Television culture and the angst of an epoch. The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror. The end of postmodernity.
2. Anthropotechnics: the making of man. Ideology versus technology.
3. The metaphor of Black Mirror. Imagining identity: the self from the screen.
4. The society of the spectacle. Postpolitics in the digital culture of screens and mobile gadgets.
5. Glimpses of postsociety: survival strategies in the age of narcissism.
6. Surveillance culture and (post)privacy.
7. Mediated reason: hyperreality and simulation.
8. Technology and the human condition.
9. Artificial intelligence and memory. The posthuman extensions of man.
10. Biopolitics and the society of control.
11. Mythologies of the future: between dystopia, utopia and retrotopia. The future as a past.
12. In the age of porn enlightenment.
