Technology, Sovereignty, Globalisation

CCCB-Bits lecture series

Directed by Evgeny Morozov, this series of lectures will link present-day discussion about technology with broader concerns like the state of the global economy and the crisis of democratic policymaking in which technology is having a decisive influence.

What will be the influence of digital technology on the future of work? What are the dangers and opportunities of automatisation? How do new nuclei of influence, for example global benchmarks like Silicon Valley, exercise power? What innovation policy should states pursue? What will be the social effects of the expanding influence of  the finance economy in urban spaces?

These lectures are jointly organised by the CCCB and BITS, an initiative for thinking about the use of the information technologies to foster an alternative political, social and economic agenda.
