The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: a conversation with prof. Shoshana Zuboff. Thursday the 22nd of October, 19:00, Litteraturhuset

The hidden and increasingly sophisticated use of our data has not solely contributed to personalized content and microtargeted advertising. Rather it has become a tool to predict and modify our behaviour as individuals and citizens. As “behavioural future markets” continue to expand, surveillance capitalism is shaping a new digital future with the potential to destabilise our economies, democracies and ourselves.

Shoshana Zuboff is the Charles Edward Wilson Professor Emerita at Harvard Business School and a former Faculty Associate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. She is the author of three books. Her most recent publication The Age of Surveillance Capitalism:  The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power has recently been published in Norwegian.

In association with Spartacus, The Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law, and the Freedom of Expression Commission, Screen Cultures is delighted to welcome Professor Shoshana Zuboff (Harvard University) as she joins Mareile Kaufman (IKRS/UiO) in conversation about the pervasiveness of surveillance capitalism. 

Tickets will be made available on Litteraturhuset's webpage on Sunday the 18th of October. The event will also be streamed on YouTube.
