Bio

Adrián Almazán has a physics degree and a philosophy PhD from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. In his research, developed from an ecosocial perspective, he has focused on approaching technologies from a poliethical perspective. Also, and starting from the basis of an ongoing collapse of our civilization, he has explored new ruralities as alternatives. Such research is carried out within the framework of the Transdisciplinary Research Group on Socioecological Transitions. He is currently a professor at the University of Deusto and a member of its Center for Applied Ethics. He is also a translator and activist in Ecologistas en Acción, where he co-coordinates the area of digitalization and CEM. He is also member of La Torna collective. Among his most recent publications are the books "Contra la doctrina del shock digital", written with Jorge Riechmann and published by CDC and "Técnica y tecnología", which will be published in May by Taugenit.

Project

During my stay at Faberllul I will continue my recent work on the implications of society’s digitalization in times of ecosocial collapse. Understanding technology as a political phenomenon, and therefore as non-neutral, I will try to systematize my reflections on the social, economic, political but also ecological and subjective-anthropological impacts of society and life’s digitalization. These reflections are intended to be sistematized in a book and will be put at the service of social movements in order to open a debate: are digitalization and social emancipation compatible?
