In 2018/19, the CCC Research-based Master inaugurates CCC PUBLIC THOUGHT as a new umbrella to accommodate the various transversal activities with students, faculty-members, external guests and (para-)institutional collaborations throughout the academic year. It includes the previously CCC-organised Public Seminar Navigating Turbulence in reduced form. However, we would like to continue to link also the new academic year of 2018/19 with a specific term, which operates not as a theme but rather as a concern to think with as constitutive condition of the contemporary. 2018/19 will resonate, thus, with the term data behaviourism that Antoinette Rouvroy suggests to analyse the ends of critique regarding ‘data society’ (Matteo Pasquinelli), or techno-fascism, or ‘franken-algorithm’ (Andrew Smith). The frame will matter explicitly in four seminar-like sessions. Furthermore, we will continue with various transversal activities that are specifically attached to seminars, or otherwise.
