Information cosmopolitics

A model of information practices

Based on the findings from the field study, information cosmopolitics is proposed as a model of information practices. From actor-network theory, a relational approach was adopted for information practices, and the concept of cosmopolitics was borrowed from Isabelle Stengers, to describe information practices as a continuous circulation in which information and users, individual and collective, humans and non-humans, cosmos and politics constantly exchange properties. A single cycle of the circulation consists of several consequential moments, necessary to perform the circulation. This chapter discusses each moment in relations to IB concepts and examples from the fieldwork.
