Bio

Adrián Almazán holds a degree in physics and a doctorate in philosophy from the Autonomous University of Madrid. In his research, developed from an ecosocial perspective, he has focused on approaching technologies from a political perspective. Also, and starting from the basis of a very deep crisis of our civilization, he has explored the new ruralities as alternatives. These investigations are carried out within the framework of the Environmental Humanities Group (GHECO) and some of its different projects. Today he is a professor of Philosophy at the Carlos III University of Madrid. Is
also translator and activist in Ecologists in Action, where he co-coordinates the digitization area. He is also part of the collective La Torna. among his most recent publications are the books "Contra la doctrina de shock digital", written with Jorge Riechmann and published by CDC and "Técnica y tecnología. Como conversar con un tecnófilo", which was published in 2021 by the publishing house 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?
