Les enjeux sociaux, politiques, économiques et culturels suscités par les plateformes numériques sont le plus souvent étudiés à partir des contextes nord-américains ou ouest-européens, beaucoup plus rarement à partir des contextes des pays des Suds. Ces deux demi-journées d’étude, en anglais, ont pour objectif tant d’esquisser un état des travaux dans ce dernier domaine que d’explorer de nouvelles pistes de recherche.
