Abstract

This article describes the impact of GAFAM (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft) on public education and, in general, analyzes the paradigm shift in the production of and access to digital knowledge. The COVID-19 pandemic favored the expansion of global oligopolies and the plataformization of processes and services: media, education, health, transport, food, etc. These phenomena generate important cultural homogenization effects and therefore constitute a threat to biocultural diversity and an obstacle to technological innovation. In this scenario it is necessary for the Digital Humanities to revive their critical role and combine its original hermeneutic and epistemological impulse with political awareness. In other words, it is time for DH to start defending and strengthening the cultural, linguistic and epistemic variation in the digital dimension.
En este artículo se describe el impacto de GAFAM (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon y Microsoft) sobre la educación pública y en general se analiza el cambio de paradigma en la producción y acceso al conocimiento digital. La pandemia de COVID-19 favoreció la expansión de los oligopolios globales y la plataformización de procesos y servicios: información, educación, salud, transportes, alimentación, etc. Al generar efectos de estandarización y homogeneización, estos fenómenos constituyen una amenaza para la diversidad biocultural y paralizan la innovación tecnológica. En este escenario es necesario que las Humanidades Digitales recuperen su papel crítico y reconviertan la originaria pulsión hermenéutica y epistemológica en conciencia política. El objetivo de las HD hoy debería ser defender y fortalecer la variación y la pluralidad cultural, lingüística y epistémica en la dimensión digital.
