Pandemic thinking

Throughout the world and throughout 2020, humanity has been dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  The cultural, political, social, environment and economic implications of the pandemic have been profound.

It is far from realisable to pull together this thinking. Nonetheless, it is worthwhile to at least identify what thoughts and ideas are emerging from this transformed world.

In late April, we held an international seminar workshop through our Global Digital Publics Network that tried to work through one way to understand how online culture is also transforming and mutating - possibly not like a virus, but nonetheless, in a manner that is fascinating to observe and important to talk through.

Of course, this seminar workshop was done virtually as a Webinar.  Along with Professors Vian Bakir and Andrew McStay from the Bangor University,  we presented thematically on:

The webinar was held on the 21st of April - relatively speaking early in the Pandemic - and each of us worked through how emotion is at play online: 

  • How we are curating ourselves differently;
  • How governments are observing our predispositions and tailoring their forms of communication; and
  • How we are working in an"empathic media" world of monitoring algorithmically
As well as the presentation Prezi which has all our slides compiled, we also moved our Zoom event and posted it on myYouTube channel: it gives you a chance to see and hear each of us, but also hear the questions and comments between each presentation.

On its own, it does identify a further form of "research" negotiation emerging from the pandemic.  And, for me at least - as someone who has used the word "pandemic" regularly and often to describe our  pervasive transformation of our public and private presentation of the self through online culture - it allowed me to think through how this particular virus is shifting our identities across and through cultures.

There are lots of themes explored in the webinar. Take a look - and  pass on what you think similarly and differently from what we have presented.  We are hoping to build further research on online mediated emotion and I will endeavour to keep you updated as this research and project advances.
