My paper titled Data Desire in the Anthropocene is now out in M/C: A Journal of Media & Culture as part of the special issue on 'protest'. 

 

In the paper, I position data in relation to desire arguing that pleasure of data and media production are ontologically imbricated in the pleasure of protest through giving a sense of ‘selfhood’ and political subjectivity.  I position data proliferation as acts of protest in the Anthropocene.  The paper takes up contrasting ideas of ‘pleasure’ and ‘desire’ in the work of Gilles Deleuze (1997).
