I am helping to organize and host an event called Digital Disobedience on cyberactivism and culture jamming this Friday with Harvard Free Culture. The event will explore the interplay between technology, activism, and cultural critique. Here are the details if you are local to Cambridge/Boston and would like to drop by:
Digital DisobedienceCyberactivism and Culture JammingFriday, December 1, 18:00Science Center 110, Harvard University
The event will feature talks by:
- Ji Lee, Artist and Creator of the Bubble Project
- J. Salvatore Testa, Defender of Truth and Liberty, Hacktivismo
- Prof. Fred Turner, Stanford University and author of From Counterculture to Cyberculture
- Prof. Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Harvard VES Department, teaching Art and Activism since 1989: Culture Jam
The format will be interactive with short presentations from the speakers and then break-out groups to discuss thoughts and questions with the presenters. A few people have voiced a desire to do some culture jamming of our own afterward. My birthday is the next day so maybe we can have that turn into a little bit of a celebration.
