CIRCLE Online Symposium 2: "Commoning the Networks"

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


This international online symposium has been designed as an intensive reading group, which will undertake focused discussion informed by reading materials circulated in advance. The main questions that the participants try to address in the discussion are: How do debates about Networks intersect with those on the concept of the Commons? Is it possible to undertake a process of “commoning the Networks”? How could this be implemented in practical terms? Which are the techniques, technologies, language requirements and relevant methodologies to make this possible? What can we learn from the ways in which interactions occur amongst networks, both vertically/horizontally and rhizomatically/progressively? How could a feminist methodology facilitate movement, processing and exchange of ideas and practices in multiple directions amongst and across diverse networks, within an ethos that engages with creativity through a process of “commoning the Networks?”
