Digital Selves

Hosted by The Forum

Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building,

Speakers

Professor David Berry

Legacy Russell

Dr Laurence Scott

Chair

Dr Shahidha Bari

How does our ubiquitous digital culture affect our sense of self? Is the self distorted, or do we now possess an invigorating digital selfdom? Should we revise our philosophical conceptions of the self in the light of social media? Our panel of writers, artists, and political theorists explore what happens to memory, to emotion, and to thought in the age of Google.

David Berry is Professor of Digital Humanities and Co-director of the Sussex Digital Humanities Lab, University of Sussex.

Legacy Russell is a writer, artist, and founding theorist of Glitch Feminism.

Laurence Scott is Senior Lecturer English and Creative Writing, Arcadia University.

Shahidha Bari is a Fellow, at The Forum and a Lecturer in Romanticism in the Department of English, Queen Mary, University of London.

The Forum for European Philosophy (@ForumPhilosophy) is an educational charity that organises a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK.
