Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


1. This text is a transcription of Rouvroy’s presentation on 7th October 2014 at the “Digital Studies” seminar series at the Centre Georges Pompidou. This seminar series, organised by the French philosopher Bernard Stiegler, question the influence of digital technologies on knowledge from an epistemological point of view and from the way they alter academic disciplines.
2. The objective is to open a debate on the status of these technologies in contemporary and future societies, and to bring about an international debate and contributions around digital studies. During this seminar, Bernard Stiegler discussed with the Belgian legal philosopher Antoinette Rouvroy, based at the University of Namur, and who developed in the last few years a new line of inquiry around what she called with Thomas Berns ‘algorithmic governmentality’. We have transcribed here her presentation and the first part of the debate that followed.
