Abundance

Visiting Lecturer: Pablo Boczkowski, Northwestern University

In this talk I will present findings from my current book project, Abundance: On the experience of living in a world of information plenty. Drawing upon 158 interviews conducted in Argentina during 2016 and 2017, and a 700-person survey administered in City of Buenos Aires and its suburbs half-way through the fieldwork, the manuscript examines the structural and cultural dynamics that mediate between an environment characterized by exponential growth in digital communication devices and content on the one hand, and different modalities of reception and experience on the other hand.
