Abstract

As six young scholars from Europe and North America, we fi rst met each other as a group of PhD students at a conference in Uppsala, Sweden, called “Critique, Democracy, and Philosophy in 21st Century Information Society. Towards Critical Theories of Social Media” (see http://www.icts-and-society.net/events/uppsala2012/). For us it was a new and inspiring experience to have discussions with other emerging critical scholars in an international context and to discover that co-operation through joint projects can be an appropriate answer to feelings of isolation and marginalisation.
