COVID-19 Update: This event has been rescheduled from its original date due to coronavirus concerns. The date on this page reflects the latest information about this event.
Humanities Washington invites us to a Think & Drink event that explores what happens when detailed information about our daily lives is gathered and sold. They examine the current state of online privacy, expressing the explicit and unspoken concerns about what’s happening to our data. What does it mean to 'own' information about yourself? Are marginalized groups more vulnerable to the consequences of surveillance capitalism? Is lack of privacy just a consequence of getting valuable platforms and apps for free? Pull up a chair and take part in a conversation about privacy (or lack thereof) in the digital age.
Panelists include: University of Washington iSchool professors Miranda Belarde-Lewis, Ryan Calo, and Annie Searle. The evening’s moderator is UW Philosophy Professor Paul Franco." (Promo Copy)
