http://icts-and-society.net/events/digital-objects-digital-subjects-a-symposium-on-activism-research-critique-in-the-age-of-big-data-capitalism-the-6th-icts-society-conference/

Presenters at the symposium will engage with questions of the digital in
respect to activism, research and critique. The conference will engage with
the possibilities, potentials, pitfalls, limits, and ideologies of digital
activism. It will reflect on whether computational social science, the
digital humanities and ubiquitous datafication enable new research
approaches or result in a digital positivism that threatens the
independence of critical research and brings about the death of the social
sciences and humanities. The conference will explore the futures, places
and possibilities of critique in the age of digital subjects and digital
objects.

The event is free, but advance registration is required (some places are
left, but get occupied quickly). To register, please complete the
