“Sociology and philosophy are two interesting standing points to critically understand our complex present. Applying their perspectives to understand connected technologies and digital media we expect to offer a set of methodological and conceptual tools to become more conscious (and potentially responsible) citizens and professionals, and to articulate discourses and practices able to positively affect the world we live in.”
