Roundtable: The New Ethereality

3/15/2021; 77 minutes

This discussion considers the contemporary politics of wireless communication, with special attention paid to the cultural and governmental imaginaries that accrue to emerging wireless infrastructures like 5G. In conversation with Tyler Morgenstern, Marisa Duarte, Shannon Mattern and Rahul Mukherjee explore how wireless ICTs shape historical and current understandings of uncertainty, conspiracy, and development. Together, panelists considered how dreams of untrammeled, high-speed connectivity tend to obscure or crowd out alternative imaginaries of relation. Recorded on 02/18/2021. (#36885)
