In the last decades, the concept of interactivity has been investigated in several different fields, in the belief that it is key to the way we inhabit the world in a broad sense.
In contrast to analog apparatuses, electronic media have been defined since their first appearance as “interactive”, thus making the concept of interactivity even more pervasive. “Interactivity” aimed both to describe the ability of electronic interfaces to respond to a user’s input, and the way the user could interact with media and devices, choosing which path to follow, manipulating, or generating new content.
However, the concept has undergone multiple and continuous translations and even risked to become something of a buzzword, travelling across as many fields of application. Should we definitely discard such a notion, as it demonstrated an in effective theoretical tool, or rather try to reassess its operational framework?

The workshop is organized within the ERC Advanced Project AN-ICON. This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. [834033 AN-ICON]), hosted by the Department of Philosophy“Piero Martinetti”(Project “Departments of Excellence 2018-2022” awarded by the Ministry of Education, University and Research).

Everyone interested is welcome to attend.

Participation is strongly recommended to students of the Doctoral School in Philosophy and Human Sciences.
