Shoshana Zuboff will present her latest book, “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power”. This new work integrates Zuboff’s lifelong themes: the historical emergence of psychological individuality, the conditions for human development, the digital revolution, and the evolution of capitalism. It begins with the oldest questions: home or exile? master or slave? It explores the emergence of surveillance capitalism as the dominant form of information capitalism and its implications for individuals, society, and democracy in the twenty-first century.

The launch will be followed by drinks at 20.30.

With Francesca Bria, City of Barcelona/Decode Project (ES), Paul Nemitz, European Commission DG Justice (EU), David Murakami Wood, Surveillance Studies Centre, Queens University (CA) and Shoshana Zuboff, Harvard Business School (US). John Naughton, University of Cambridge/The Observer (UK) will be moderator.

Please register before 28 January 2019.
