Mainstream education tends to portray digital technologies and devices either as inert tools at the fingertips of a neoliberal student or as a force to be feared and therefore harnessed.
Professor Gourlay will argue that both of these views are problematic and inaccurate. Leading to a collapse into utopian/dystopian binaries and fantasies around digital magic and the disembodied user.
