Lecture with Shoshana Zuboff: The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

Shoshana Zuboff, professor emerita at Harvard Business School, discusses her latest book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power. In this critically acclaimed work, Zuboff shows how our economy, politics, and society are increasingly being shaped by digital technologies. In her view, surveillance capitalism—a concept she coined—defines the current age in which we’ve all opted into the commodification of our personal information. Throughout the book, she outlines the cost of putting a price on private data, and she urges all of us to pay attention, resist habituation, and come up with novel responses to a new era.

Following the reading and Q&A from 7:30-9 pm, there will be a book signing and reception from 9-10 pm. Tickets are required for this event, please reserve them in advance. Please RSVP

This event is part of the programming of the Babson-Olin-Wellesley faculty-led initiative Intellectual Community Building Through Reading, Discussion, and Public Guest Lectures.
