One-day workshop focussing on education, featuring keynote speaker Hilary Wainwright, author of Reclaim the State: Experiments in Popular Democracy.
There are growing concerns about consequences of social media, cyberbullying, data privacy and online behaviour on users, especially children and young people. We will explore these issues and promote digital literacy using an innovative format that brings people together and facilitates reflection on digital rights.
Organised by Professor Brigitte Nerlich as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, this panel debate will be chaired by the scientist and broadcaster Adam Rutherford, author of the book ‘Creation: How science is reinventing life itself’ (2013) and presenter of BBC Radio 4’s flagship science programme, ‘Inside Science’.

The evening will be introduced by Dr Kathryn Almack, who will speak about her research exploring end of life experiences and care needs in the lives of older LGBT people; a UK-based project funded by Marie Curie Cancer Care. This will be followed by a screening of Gen Silent, a critically-acclaimed US documentary, which explores real-life issues facing older LGBT people in later life and towards the end of life.
