Data, Democracy and the Digital
19 November, 2018, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A panel of politicians and social scientists discuss the impact of digital developments on contemporary politics. Digital devices and availability of data help citizens engage with the democratic process and inform themselves about our fast-changing world. Simultaneously, the rise of ‘fake news’, novel data-gathering techniques and filter bubbles seem to contribute to increasing polarisation within society. In the context of Brexit and Trump, this panel will ask if this is the end of politics as we thought we knew it?
The panel will be chaired by Professor Melissa Terras (University of Edinburgh) and will include Dr Isabel Kusche (Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies), Professor Laura Cram (University of Edinburgh), Marco Biagi (Yale University), Dr Nicole Rigillo (Indian Institute of Management).
The event will be held in the Auditorium, National Museum of Scotland. Accessibility information can be found here.
