Scott McQuireThe relationship between the increasing use of digital networks and current transformations in modes of inhabiting urban space will be treated in the meeting 'The Right to the Networked City: Digital Networks and Urban Space', that will be hold on September 30 at 9 am in IEA's Event Room.

The speaker will be Scott McQuire, from the University of Melbourne's School of Culture and Communication. The researcher will discuss digital networks and urban space, focusing on the possibilities of creating a participatory public space through the use of new media.

According to him, since "the networked interactions have become an everyday dimension of negotiation of the contemporary public space, there is an urgent need to think about how this trajectory transforms the oldest geometries of power in the city".

The opening of the meeting will be in charge of anthropologist Massimo Canevacci, visiting professor at the IEA, who will give a lecture on 'Communicational Metropolis and Ubiquitous Subjectivities'.

The event will be broadcast live from IEA's Event Room at

The meeting has been organized by the IEA with the support of UNESP, organizer of the '2nd International Seminar on Gender, Sexuality and Media', that will be hold from October 1 to 3 in Bauru, and also attended by McQuire.
