CFP: EASST 2018 - Commoning the Smart City
EASST 2018, 25-28th July 2018, Lancaster University, UK
We (Nicole Foster and ginger coons of the Digital Cultures Research Centre
at the University of the West of England) welcome submissions to EASST 2018
panel A10: Commoning the Smart City. Submissions can be made through the
EASST website https://nomadit.co.uk/easst/easst2018/conferencesuite.php/pa
nels/6199. Deadline for submissions is February 14, 2018.
Engineers, planners and policymakers espouse faith in technocratic
solutions to urban ills. 'Smart city' narratives suggest that positive
outcomes can be achieved by creating personalised experiences of the city.
Instead of a generalised conception of the public, city inhabitants are
constructed as diverse consumers representing market sectors. Interactions
with public services and spaces can be tailored to produce efficient
behavior and pleasurable, engaging experiences, making concerns regarding
surveillance and social engineering more difficult to identify and contest.
Because the 'smart city' is based on aggregating and exploiting individual
preferences and behaviors, realising the ideal of an urban commons becomes
even more elusive.
The 'hackable city' (frequently constituted as bottom-up organizing) could
provide a subversive corrective to 'smart city' (top-down,
centrally-managed) initiatives. However, the radical potential of these
practices remains uncertain. While do-it-yourself urbanists and civic
hackers can be seen as challenging these narratives through the
appropriation of technologies and spaces by encouraging unsanctioned uses
of public spaces, such projects are not subject to participatory planning
processes and may reflect elite consumption preferences. 'Hackable city'
interventions could prove to be exclusionary.
We invite contributions which critically explore the tensions underpinning
smart and hackable city technologies, public space and its relationship to
the commons. How might engagement with technically-mediated public spaces
undermine or constitute a commons? Do hackable city interventions empower
public space users to become producers? We especially seek work that
complicates implicit dichotomies like bottom-up and top down, or hackable
versus smart, engaging with the grey space between extremes.
