Event description
5x15 presents: The Age of Surveillance Capitalism - Shoshana Zuboff (Harvard University) speaks to Misha Glenny (McMafia) live in London

About this Event

Join us for this event with Professor Shoshana Zuboff (‘the true prophet of the information age’ Financial Times) and Misha Glenny (author of McMafia and DarkMarket)- a rare opportunity to hear two world experts and an essential discussion for anyone interested in the future of society.

What are the struggles that will decide the next chapter of capitalism? How can we ensure that we are the masters of the digital, rather than its slaves? Soshana Zuboff is the Charles Edward Wilson Professor Emerita at Harvard Business School as well as Faculty Associate at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. Misha Glenny is an author, an expert on global organised crime and cyber security and a distinguished investigative journalist and historian.

Shoshana Zuboff's ground breaking new book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, is a deeply-reasoned examination of the threat of unprecedented power free from democratic oversight. As it explores this new capitalism’s impact on society, politics, business, and technology, it exposes the fundamental struggles that will decide both the next chapter of capitalism and the meaning of information civilization. Most critically, it shows how we can protect ourselves and our communities.

“From the very first page I was consumed with an overwhelming imperative: everyone needs to read this book as act of digital self-defence." Naomi Klein

Advance praise for The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

“Shoshana Zuboff has produced the most provocative compelling moral framework thus far for understanding the new realities of our digital environment and its anti-democratic threats. From now on, all serious writings on the internet and society will have to take into account The Age of Surveillance Capitalism.” - Joseph Turow, Robert Lewis Shayon Chair Professor, Annenberg School, University of Pennsylvania

“Zuboff’s expansive, erudite, deeply-researched exploration of digital futures elucidates the norms and hidden terminal goals of information-intensive industries. Zuboff’s book is the information industry’s Silent Spring.” - Chris Hoofnagle, University of California, Berkeley
