We would like to cordially invite you to our upcoming Global Digital Cultures Soirée, which will take place on January 31, 2023, between 18:00 and 22:00, in Claire's Ballroom at Kapitein Zeppos. 

Dear colleagues, 

We would like to cordially invite you to our Global Digital Cultures Soirée, which will take place on January 31, 2023, between 18:00 and 22:00, in Claire's Ballroom at Kapitein Zeppos

The objective is to stage lively debate and stimulate fruitful exchanges between Amsterdam-based researchers working on Global Digital Cultures across the humanities, social sciences, and economics.

This time, we invite Huub Dijstelbloem and Marieke de Goede to the stage to discuss their work on platforms and security.

Huub Dijstelbloem is Professor of Philosophy of Science, Technology and Politics and Scientific Director of the Institute for Advanced Study of the University of Amsterdam. He is co-founder of the Platform for the Ethics and Politics of Technology and one of the initiators of the movement Science in Transition. Building bridges between science, research, society and policy-making, and methodological and conceptual innovation is central to his work. He was a member of the KNAW advisory committees on roots and prevention of inappropriate behavior in academia (present) and on the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (2015-2016) and served twice as ad interim Chair of the Department of Philosophy .

Marieke de Goede is dean of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam. In her teaching and research, De Goede works at the intersection of the humanities and the social sciences, with a focus on security practices in Europe and the role of financial data in counterterrorism. Since 2015, she has been leading the research project FOLLOW: Following the Money from Transaction to Trial, for which she acquired a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council. Previously, she was principal investigator of the European Security Cultures research project, for which she was awarded a Vidi grant by the Dutch Research Council (NWO). In addition, she participates in various international and externally funded research networks, including the CRAAFT: Collaboration, Research and Analysis Against the Financing of Terrorism project, in collaboration with RUSI Europe, and, before that, the Datawars project, in collaboration with Durham University. De Goede’s articles have appeared in leading international journals, including Review of International StudiesInternational Political Sociology, Journal of Common Market Studies and South Atlantic Quarterly. She is the author and co-editor of several books, including Speculative Security and Virtue, Fortune and Faith (both University of Minnesota Press).

After brief presentations from these scholars, the floor will be open for questions and comments from participants. To prepare for the discussion, we will share the texts with you in due time following your registration. 

As always, our soirées involve food and drinks; the evening will start with drinks, and dinner will be served around 19:30.

We look forward to seeing you!

Thomas Poell & Rivke Jaffe
