Digital Harms: Theoretical Perspectives, Lived Experiences

May 20 @ 10:30 am 4:00 pm

Organised by Jessica Elias and Adi Kuntsman, supported by the Digital Society Research Group. Roundtable will be streamed.

The Digital Society Research Group invites you to an event exploring the wide-ranging harms of digitalisation and technologisation, from the environment to the individual. The event includes a roundtable discussion with our guest speakers, a networking and social event with refreshments, and a creative zine-making workshop to explore your perceptions and lived experiences of digital harms. 

The Roundtable will be chaired by Dr Adi Kuntsman, Reader in Digital Politics at Manchester Metropolitan University. During the panel, our speakers will each discuss their approaches to conceptualising digital harms. The speakers come from a range of interdisciplinary backgrounds spanning critical criminology, sociology, environmental studies, feminist studies, zemiology, surveillance studies, post-colonial studies, and technology studies. The second portion of the panel discussion will be an open Q&A with audience members. The zine-making workshop will be facilitated by Dr Kirsty Fife, Lecturer in Digital Information and Curatorial Practice at Manchester Metropolitan University.
