Tea-Time Talks Series (Spring 2017): Spies, Trolls, Drones and Polls: Being(s) in Cyberspace
You are warmly invited to join us for a new series of weekly talks taking place in March 2017. These talks are dedicated to a topic that affects each one of us in some way or another - the question of Ethics and Rights in Cyberspace.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, "The Common Good: Ethics and Rights in Cyber Security" project seeks to understand where the balance lies between security and ethics in digital governance. If the recent controversies surrounding U.S. governmental surveillance and implicated technology companies demonstrated anything, it is the need for proportionate, just and effective cyber security in digital governance that is committed to the common good.
Part of the The Common Good: Ethics and Rights in Cyber Security project. The project team also organised the Digital Dystopias Film Festival linked to the Hull City of Culture 2017 celebrations.
Digital Dystopias: Imagining Our Virtual Futures in a Post -Orwellian World by Dr Simon Willmetts.
