    Duration: 240 min
    Brief Description:

    In the panel "Platform university and algorithmic governmentality" we will discuss how the recent "digital pandemic turn" is transforming our educational system and how to elaborate both theoretical and practical strategies to resist the EdTech assault on our institutions. The panel is organized in two parts. In the first part, coordinated by Valeria Pinto (University of Naples Federico II, Italy), Javier Blanco (UNC, Argentina), Teresa Numerico (University of Roma Tre, Italy), and Paola Ricaurte (Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico) will summarize the theoretical debate on the idea of "governamentality", and how this concept is related to the production, extraction and representation of digital knowledge and data. In the second part, coordinated by Domenico Fiormonte (University of Roma Tre, Italy), Paolo Monella (University of Roma La Sapienza, Italy), Cecilia Cargnelutti (UNC, Argentina) and Gabriel Pereira (Instituto Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil) will discuss a number of case studies and experiences from different countries and institutions.
