Digital identity building: A dialogue with Berlin technology and computer science students

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenKapitelbegutachtet


The relationship between the "non-human" and the "human" has recently attracted much research interest. The traditional dualism between "subject" and "object" has been questioned, the "subjectivity" and the "agency" of "objects" has been propagated, and the "object-character" of "subjects" has been explored. Interrelating humans with personal computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones leads to novel forms of media competence; these in turn shape young people's identity formation. The chapter concludes some propositions for future research and debate: Digital technologies have created new ways of accessing the world, a homogeneous mediality is spreading, and Through the use of digital technologies, social relationships take place in digital spaces. And also includes: How young people relate to their bodies is increasingly configured in relation to digital technologies, the transformation of role models, the fusion of digital and non-digital world's leads to new digital forms of human life and Young people's practical sense is increasingly based on hyperspherical practices.
