Join WCAB for dinner at the Lulu at 6pm and then attend this facinating talk. Our WCAB Fall Kick-Off Meeting featured Wellesley Computer Science Professor Mustafaraj who promoted this event!
Shoshana Zuboff, professor emerita at Harvard Business School, discusses her latest book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power. In this critically acclaimed work, Zuboff shows how our economy, politics, and society are increasingly being shaped by digital technologies. In her view, surveillance capitalism—a concept she coined—defines the current age in which we’ve all opted into the commodification of our personal information. Throughout the book, she outlines the cost of putting a price on private data, and she urges all of us to pay attention, resist habituation, and come up with novel responses to a new era.
Tickets are required, please reserve tickets in advance.
Following the reading and Q&A from 7:30-9 PM, there will be a book signing and reception from 9-10 PM. A limited number of books will be available for purchase with cash or check.
This event is part of the programming of the Babson-Olin-Wellesley faculty-led initiative Intellectual Community Building Through Reading, Discussion, and Public Guest Lectures. For more information about the lecture, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
