Access, Authority, and Identity
|This symposium’s focus was on the threshold concepts of access, authority, and identity in the electronic mediation of humanness. What do innovations in the digital provision of access and maintenance of authority mean for human identity, and conversely, what do new ideas about, and forms of, identity mean for our evolving norms of access, authorship, and authorization? A number of high-visibility electronic experiments in radical access and the reconfiguration of authority have now come – and many have gone. What have we learned, and in what ways have these experiments changed humanities conversations broadly?|
