Abstract:

In what follows, some contemporary narratives about ‘the information society’ are interrogated from critical race theoretical and decolonial perspectives with a view to constructing a ‘counter-narrative’ purporting to demonstrate the embeddedness of coloniality – that is, the persistent operation of colonial logics – in such discourses.

Keywords: narrative; information society; colonialism; decolonial thought; critical race theory; apocalyptic worldviews; algorithmics; history; Big Data; Internet of Things; ubiquitous computing
