This Cambridge conference is open to all, but booking is required. All day conference fees are £20 (full) or £10 (student, ECF), includes refreshments and lunch.

In 2016 Philip Howard, now Professor of Internet Studies at Oxford and a leading scholar on the impact of the Internet on politics, published 'Pax Technica: How the Internet of Things May Set Us Free or Lock Us Up' in which he tried to assess what the long-term implications of this hyper-connected network might be.

Pax Technica is an ambitious and far-reaching book, and like all such volumes, it raises almost as many questions — about international and national politics, governance, security and privacy — as it answers.

The 'Technology and Democracy' project at CRASSH seeks to use the book as a jumping-off point for exploring some of these questions. Our one-day conference will feature Professor Howard and invited experts from a number of relevant disciplines.

The event will open with a keynote address, after which three panels of invited experts will discuss specific implications of a hyper-connected world.
