A Slice of Claret News - May Edition

Our zoom event on May 30 is fast approaching! Join us for

George Orwell's 1984. The Dangers of Data and the Surveillance State, episode 5 of our 6-part series, hosted by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster Libraries.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of data collection, both by companies and by the state? How can we ensure our right to privacy and protect our democracy in a time of unregulated data manipulation?

We will be joined by special guest Nesse van der Meer who is a PhD candidate at TU Delft in the Netherlands, focussing on the effects of technology on learning.

You'll be able to ask him questions at the end in a lengthy Q&A.
