‘We will stop at nothing until we’ve achieved our goal. Permanent destruction of the identification role.’ — Anonymous

As part of the series Rethinking the Human Sciences, the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society presents:

A talk by Kriss Ravetto, Associate Professor of Technocultural Studies, in the Program in Technoculutral Studies at the University of California – Davis.

 

Kriss Ravetto wants to show that the hacker collective Anonymous is doing something much more interesting and political important than practicing and celebrating anonymity.  It is, she argues, upsetting dichotomies that are fundamental to traditional political thought and practice, like identification and anonymity, liberation and control, dissent and accountability, privacy and piracy.
