23rd May, The Collaboratory, Logan Campus

Hosted by Griffith Review and Griffith Library

Digital disruption is viewed with suspicion. We are better connected than ever but feel on edge.

  • What are the ethical, moral, and social consequences of our enmeshed online world?
  • With tech revolutions rocking the foundations of society, how can we allay these fears?
  • Is the enjoyment in your life slipping away under a morass of Facebook notifications and Twitter mentions?
  • Worried your personal information was compromised by Cambridge Analytica to swing an election?
  • And what are influencers?

Join Ian Townsend, Dr Margaret Gibson, Associate Professor Ingrid Burkett and Dr Dinesh Palipana in the Collaboratory at Logan Campus for this illuminating event.
