Data and the Digital in Platform Societies: Launching 'Digital Societies' at Surrey

The Department of Sociology and the Digital Societies Research Group at the University of Surrey is delighted to present Data and the Digital in Platform Societies - on 14th December 2018, at the University of Surrey, Guildford UK. The event features a keynote address by Prof Andreas Hepp from the University of Bremen, Germany, who will be speaking about "Datafication and Deep Mediatization: Rethinking Social Construction". The event showcases a range of internal and external speakers, all engaging with datafication and its implications in contemporary mediated societies. These themes bring together the work of Surrey Sociology's new Digital Societies research group. Bringing together expertise across the Department, we engage with the role of emerging technologies, data and platforms in contemporary mediated societies. Our work is aligned with connecting societies and culture, one of our grand challenges in research, the living and working in the digital age research priority and the University of Surrey's digital innovation research theme.


Tickets: Entry including lunch and refreshements is free, but on a ticketed, first-come, first-served basis.
