Emergency politics in the digital age: Beyond crisis informatics

Conference paper

Kolås, Åshild (2023) Emergency politics in the digital age: Beyond crisis informatics, presented at International Studies Association Annual Convention, Montréal, Canada, 15-18 March 2023.

This paper examines the digitalization of emergency management in Europe through a digital humanities lens, exploring how a seemingly simple issue of effective communication is embroiled in emergency politics. Against this backdrop, the paper revisits questions about trust and legitimate authority, and raises new questions about crisis communication using AI, and battles over information and responsibility in the age of many-to-many communication.
