New Rules for the WWW Social Media & Building Inclusivity: Who's on First Habermas or Foucault?

Oct 19, 2012, 10:30am-12pm

Professor Emeritus of political science Daniel Drache, senior research Fellow of the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York, will look at the compulsion to share with others as a central imperative of modern life. Today, new technologies can liberate us from the tribe or create new digital ones. But the key question is, in the age of Web 2.0, where new technologies enable us to “tell all” and live our lives “without curtains”, what are the consequences for surveillance and privacy? How does social media impact the dynamics of bottom up social inclusion/exclusion?

As director of the Robarts Centre between 1994 and 2003, Drache established the Centre’s reputation in the field of public policy. He has written widely on globalization and the limits of markets, trade blocs, the political economy of dissent and economic integration. He has been a research associate at the European University Institute, Florence; a professor invité at CEPREMAP-CNRS, Paris; a visiting scholar at Macquarrie University, the University of Western Sydney and the AGSM, University of New South Wales and a guest lecturer at UNAM, Mexico. In June 2003 he was the Australia-Canada Millennium Lecturer given in Sydney Australia. In 2003 - 2004 he was senior resident, Massey College, University of Toronto. In 2008 he was visiting research professor at North American Centre for Tranborder Studies, Arizona State University. In 2009, he was invited to India as the Shastri Indo-Canada Distinguished Visiting Professor and lectured at 10 different Indian academic institutions. In June, he was invited by five Argentinian Universities to lecture and give seminars on globalization after neo-liberalism. In 2010, he was the Ford Foundation Visiting Professor the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance, JNU, New Delhi August through December.
