People vs Tech: How The Internet Is Killing Democracy (and how we can save it)

9th August 2018 @ 19:30 - 21:30


Jamie will talk about his new book ‘The People Vs Tech’, which argues there is a looming war between democracy and digital technology. He will explain what Cambridge Analytica did during the Trump election – and whether it made a difference – and suggest that democracies are being slowly undermined by the internet. Jamie will also set out what needs to be done to avoid the drift into techno-authoritarianism.

Copies of Jamie’s latest book will be available for purchase at the event and he will be happy to sign copies upon request.

Jamie Bartlett is the Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think-tank Demos, where he specialises in online social movements and the impact of technology on society. He is also author of the best selling book The Dark Net and a regular commentator on national and international media outlets.
