Week 3—— Exploring Digital Culture

  • In the same way that “I think therefore I am” privileged the mind over the body discourse, language, and writing became privileged in our understanding of self
  • “Rational”
  • Constructed
  • Something we have control over


  • bringing the body back into the picture
  • As we know, our body often reacts first
  • There are limits to what “objectivity” and “representation” in research can account for
  • Textual representations become constraining and ‘downplays the material, the embodied, and the sensory in studies of culture and society.’ (Paasonen, Hillis and Petit 2015: 4)
  • Feminist
  • The body is always in a world
