Crisis and Ethics

Category: Ethics — Biella @ 10:05 pm

Now that the dissertation is almost done, I realize that a lot of it focuses on the experience of crisis and its relationship to the otherwise mundane processes of everyday life through which values are erected and solidified. My first chapter, for example looks at the DeCSS protests, examining how they allow for a moment of acute reflexivity in which incipient norms are solidified. Crisis is a moment in which certain cultural trends are sealed, a done deal, well at least until another crisis hits. Now I am on my last full chapter, which examines three ethical moments/forms of labor that unfold on the Debian project
