::: 12/03 - The Collège des Bernardins is organizing, as part of the series of meetings on the theme of the digital body, two meetings, on Thursday 12 March at 5 p.m., and Tuesday 17 March at 5 p.m., between Milad Doueihi, philosopher and Gemma Serrano, theologian.
The wound is visible and has a long intellectual and theological history: a cross between Milad Doueihi, philosopher, and Gemma Serrano, theologian, during the series of meetings on the theme of the digital body.
The biological body, the "clean" body and the social body associated with the technique acquire new cultural rhythms. Digital culture has convinced the bodies - how? What are the uses of bodies? Which "techniques of body and soul" find a new configuration? Which social rhythms are being played? Which bodies are we talking about?
The staging of the human in the digital environment arranges the affects, sets the rhythm, signals the measure, informs the habitus, unveils the interiority, sets up the ritual, changes the imaginary....
The wound is visible and has a long intellectual and theological history. Following the formula of Jacques Ellul, the "technical wound" modifies the body and creaks at the presence of tools or simple technological objects, but in a new cohabitation. Does the body become a deliverer of data? (from geolocation to health data, etc.). Or is it becoming an interface?
The whole theological and scientific history of injury is available to think about the digital body, the emergence of novel interfaces anchored in the body and the code, as well as forms of visibility and invisibility. The body is also that of the globe and the blood of the earth cries out through forms of technical violence.
