How is sociality performed in the digital age? This paper session endeavors to map and critically engage with our digital society through various forms of interpreting, knowing and analyzing the geographical world. We discuss the ethics of the increasing datafication of human lives, the mediation of technology and artificial intelligence in everyday living and the new geographies that emerge from these encounters.
From ludic geographies including Pokemon Go! to digital economies and virtual affects and senses, and their effects on corporeal and urban landscapes, we examine various scales of digitalization to the body, the urban space and the virtual territo-realities.
