POWER PLAYERS IN THE DIGITAL AGE: The Unwritten Future of Democracy

08. Oct 18:00 - 20:00

LOCATION: Geisteswissenschaftliches Zentrum, Lecture Hall (Ground Floor), Beethovenstraße 15, 04107 Leipzig

Join the American Space Leipzig for a public talk on the exercise of power and democratic participation in the digital age with the director of the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University, Professor Nicco Mele.

Prof. Mele argues that in the digital age governments, corporations, centers of knowledge are eroding before the power of the individual Unless we exercise deliberate moral choice over the design and use of technologies, Mele says, we doom ourselves to a future that renders social structures chaotic and destroys rather than enhances freedom.

As always, the event is free and open to the public. The event will be held in English.

We look forward to seeing you there!
