Is the global extraction of data and the online export of Western cultural values establishing a form of ‘digital colonialism’? A growing amount of research is being published on the concept with some arguing that the rise of big tech is exacerbating inequality between the Global North and the Global South. PhD researcher and former Editor of Media Diversified, Henna Zamurd-Butt, will be joining us to discuss. The event will be chaired by writer, author and broadcaster, Yassmin Abdel-Magied.
