Rethinking the Relationships between Real Societies and Cyberspaces


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 30 Aug 11:00 - 15:30


Room 2.4

Social sciences have a tendency, more or less, to distinguish cyberspaces from the real societies; some researchers deal with cyberspaces as a cluster of samples or as the interacting significant other of the real societies, while the others argue the two are more on skew lines, never to totally cross one another. However, now that online communication has become an indispensable part of offline relationships, we are being required to count more various patterns of relationships between the two. (Refer to Daniel Miller's online-based research project ""Why we post."") This panel takes presentations on case studies of South Korean socio-cultures, especially under consideration. South Korea's connection to the Internet already took eleventh place in the world in 2017, but it is still growing most rapidly among the top fifteens. Another significant feature of Korean cyberspaces is that it is strongly tied with the monolingual culture whose socio-cultures are strongly integrated. By focusing on it, it would become more effective to discuss on the ties between the online and the offline. Presentations that focus on different areas will also be welcome. Comparing with each other's environment and conclusion, this panel will be getting close to our goal, a theoretical brainstorming, not ending up as a series of miscellaneous online ethnographies.

This presentation aims to clarify how Tibetan people in North India recognize and experience their relationships with others in real lives and cyberspaces. This presentation also tries to show the continuity and the interaction between them rather than their separation. As we can see from the Arab Spring, cyberspaces have been closely related to people’s behavior and politics since 2000. India ... More

Recent scandals concerning the ab/use of personal data by internet giants such as Facebook or Google sparks a new discussion of how to ethically construct, collect and analyse datasets in cyberspace and what impact can these datasets have on the “real” world. Following argument made by Patricia Ticineto Clough concerning the “datalogical turn” and its relation to sociological unconscious, ... More

They aspire to integrate into the Korean social fabric through career choice, and produce K-pop realities by performing Korean dance, conforming ... More

I consider the emergence of anti-rape activism within and beyond the bounds of the post-apartheid South African university. Rhodes University and Wits University have been sites of feminism, naked protest action and anti-rape campaigns that have moved beyond the campus and into other public spaces. I position the #RememberKwezi silent protest lead by four Black womxn students as a lens in which to ... More

The term “Hell-Choson” gave a big shock to South Korean society when it explosively spread online in 2015. It reflects the political-economic distress drove many South Korean youths to claim that their country was as hard for them to survive in just as the hell, and that the authoritarian classified socioculture was unchained since Choson dynasty. Some laughed at them arguing there was no heav ... More

William Gibson in his 1984 science-fiction novel Neuromancer introduced the term “Cyberspace”, a fictional space distinct from the real world. For years, cyberspace seemed to be an unlikely reality until the proliferation of the internet. Advancement of technology gave birth to artificial intelligence, augmented reality and others, resulting in a creation of a space of interaction for the real ... More
