The Digital Society is one of the thematic weeks during Lund University’s year-long 350th anniversary. The week starts with a two-day symposium, April 24-25, that addresses the digital society from a number of perspectives through its 4 invited international guest and 16 scholars from Lund University.
The two days are structured by four themes:
- Legal and Political Changes in the Digital Society
- Digital Communication and Media
- Local Experiences, Global Challenge
- Digital Technology – the Sky is the Limit?
Our ambition is to fill the Lund City Hall with a mix of students, scholars and participants from all parts of society and we are very much proud to announce that the conference involves four invited plenary speakers of particular excellence:
- Professor Lawrence Lessig, Harvard University: How digital has destroyed democracy — and what we can do to recover it
- Professor José van Dijck, University of Amsterdam: Who governs the platform society? Embattling public values in a connective world
- Professor Hu Yong, Peking University: The Internet in China: The Same, but Different
- Professor Danica Kragic,Royal Institute of Technology, KTH: Man and Machine – the Challenge of Collaboration
