Il presente volume è finalizzato al raggiungimento di diversi obiettivi: operare una ricostruzione critica e unitaria del fenomeno degli hackers; superare le concezioni sensazionalistiche e superficiali che lo hanno travisato; analizzarne gli aspetti involutivi ed evolutivi mettendo in luce i profili giuridicamente rilevanti; valutare il contributo degli hackers e della loro etica alla costruzione della società contemporanea; studiare il ruolo della disobbedienza civile e dell’hacktivism alla luce della crisi delle moderne democrazie rappresentative e della società globalizzata; delineare alcune possibili prospettive del fenomeno. Una simile indagine, che abbraccia problematiche diverse, ha richiesto una considerazione unitaria ed interdisciplinare dell’hacking. Caratterizzato da un’etica dirompente, è espressione dell’agire di un uomo che vuole essere artefice del proprio destino e che può contribuire anche a migliorare quello altrui grazie alla condivisione delle proprie idee. In una società caratterizzata da molteplici elementi critici, soprattutto in ambito informatico-giuridico, ciò non è tuttavia facile. Gli effetti della rivoluzione tecnologica hanno infatti modificato la società contemporanea rendendo problematica l’attività di legislatori e magistrati, in un mondo in cui i confini tradizionali fra gli stati sono sempre più labili e quelli digitali quasi inesistenti; in esso sorgono nuovi soggetti che pretendono di far sentire la propria voce e di esprimere consenso e dissenso non solo nel proprio stato e verso i propri rappresentanti ma anche nella società globale. Tuttavia, l’interazione, a diversi livelli, è spesso virtuale e posta in essere mediante strumenti informatici e reti telematiche, in comunità reali e virtuali (inclusi i siti di social network). Il sensazionalismo che caratterizza nuovi e vecchi media ha tuttavia portato a travisare la figura degli hackers, soggetti ben distinti dai criminali informatici ma ad essi normalmente parificati, nonostante la loro etica sia basata su principi che richiamano quelli democratici. Un recupero di tale etica può assumere una fondamentale importanza nella Società dell’informazione, ove molti fenomeni, sinora legati alla materialità della realtà fattuale, assumono valenze nuove in seguito allo sviluppo delle tecnologie informatiche: basti pensare alla disobbedienza civile elettronica, che può diventare una forma assai efficace di espressione del dissenso. In tale quadro, compiutamente analizzato nel presente volume, gli hackers, oggi più che in passato, possono fornire un prezioso apporto nello sviluppo di una società che cambia forse troppo in fretta e contribuire al rispetto di quei principi di democrazia e libertà troppo spesso proclamati e contestualmente violati.

Les cultures numériques se présentent, pour le meilleur et pour le pire, comme l'achèvement et le dépassement des avant-gardes artistiques du XXe siècle. L'effervescence de leurs connexions esquisse inconsciemment de nouvelles manières d'être-là et d'habiter le monde. De quel monde s'agit-il ? Quelle place y joue l'être humain ? Que devient le public de jadis à l'époque de la reproductibilité numérique de l'oeuvre d'art ? Réseaux sociaux, smartphones, tablettes, Wifi, wearable technologies, biotechnologies, socialités en ligne, prolifération d'identités et de communautés électroniques, Internet des objets : les médias sont de moins en moins des mondes séparés et immatériels par rapport à la vie quotidienne, en devenant plutôt, à bien y voir, le monde que l'on habite sa matrice, son rêve, sa dernière incarnation. Les liens naissant de ce paysage ne reposent plus sur un contrat rationnel et abstrait, mais sur une série de pactes dans lesquels l'émotion, l'onirique et les affects apparaissent comme les nouveaux aimants de l'être-ensemble. Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Periscope, Snapchat et autres plateformes cristallisent alors autant d'affinités connectives pour lesquelles l'érotisme et la mort sont les deux polarités d'une même condition, d'un vitalisme exubérant mu à la fois par un éloge de l'éphémère et par un sentiment tragique de l'existence.

In Transcultural Writers and Novels in the Age of Global Mobility, Arianna Dagnino analyzes a new type of literature emerging from artists' increased movement and cultural flows spawned by globalization. This "transcultural" literature is produced by authors who write across cultural and national boundaries. Dagnino's book contains a creative rendition of interviews conducted with five internationally renowned writers-Inez Baranay, Brian Castro, Alberto Manguel, Tim Parks, and Ilija Trojanow-and a critical exegesis reflecting on thematic critical, and stylistic aspects. By studying the selected authors' corpus of work, life experiences, and cultural orientations, Dagnino explores the implicit, often subconscious process of cultural and imaginative metamorphosis that leads transcultural writers and their fictionalized characters beyond ethnic national, racial, or religious loci of identity and identity formation. "The work is a significant contribution to scholorship, for it increases our theoretical awareness of today's literary developments, providing us with critical tools that enable us to approach literary texts with an innovative perspective."-Maurizio Ascari, Universita di Bologna.

Informatization is playing an increasingly important role in democratic politics. For some time already, various applications of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are, more or less successfully, used by politicians, representative bodies, political parties and citizens. It is, however, reasonable to believe that informatizaton will be of paramount interest for existing actors and institutions that are involved in public decision-making in a democracy. The advent of telecommunication infrastructures that will enable the use of all kinds of interactive facilities, is considered to be an important step towards a more participative democratic system. Many projects that share a common feature have been set up: their ambition to renew democratic decision-making structures and practises with the help of ICT. Most of these projects can be found at the level of local and/or regional government. In this book, the claim that these projects can reform or strengthen democratic politics is explored and discussed both empirically and theoretically. The research that is presented in this book makes clear that, as far as the role of informatization regarding the functioning of the democratic polity is concerned, it appears that informatization represents both opportunities and threats.

In his famous classification of the sciences, Francis Bacon not only catalogued those branches of knowledge that already existed in his time, but also anticipated the new disciplines he believed would emerge in the future: the "desirable sciences." Mikhail Epstein echoes, in part, Bacon's vision and outlines the "desirable" disciplines and methodologies that may emerge in the humanities in response to the new realities of the twenty-first century. Are the humanities a purely scholarly field, or should they have some active, constructive supplement? We know that technology serves as the practical extension of the natural sciences, and politics as the extension of the social sciences. Both technology and politics are designed to transform what their respective disciplines study objectively. The Transformative Humanities: A Manifesto addresses the question: Is there any activity in the humanities that would correspond to the transformative status of technology and politics? It argues that we need a practical branch of the humanities which functions similarly to technology and politics, but is specific to the cultural domain.

A daily battle for rights and freedoms in cyberspace is being waged in Asia. At the epicenter of this contest is China--home to the world's largest Internet population and what is perhaps the world's most advanced Internet censorship and surveillance regime in cyberspace. Resistance to China's Internet controls comes from both grassroots activists and corporate giants such as Google. Meanwhile, similar struggles play out across the rest of the region, from India and Singapore to Thailand and Burma, although each national dynamic is unique. Access Contested, the third volume from the OpenNet Initiative (a collaborative partnership of the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk School of Global Affairs, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and the SecDev Group in Ottawa), examines the interplay of national security, social and ethnic identity, and resistance in Asian cyberspace, offering in-depth accounts of national struggles against Internet controls as well as updated country reports by ONI researchers. The contributors examine such topics as Internet censorship in Thailand, the Malaysian blogosphere, surveillance and censorship around gender and sexuality in Malaysia, Internet governance in China, corporate social responsibility and freedom of expression in South Korea and India, cyber attacks on independent Burmese media, and distributed-denial-of-service attacks and other digital control measures across Asia.
