Book Launch: Your Computer is on Fire

March 9, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join Hazel Rogers Associate Professor of Media Studies Ben Peters and his co-editors to celebrate the launch of their new book, Your Computer is on Fire. This collection of essays gives the context and historical background of the techlash and offers potential solutions to the problems we’re facing with high tech infrastructures as they scale. It’s especially pitched at CS and other STEM students who may be interested in the social, political and ethical issues that have been coming to the fore regarding Big Tech recently, but it’s for all readers – inside and outside of academia – in any field. These issues affect us all, and it’s all hands on deck to solve them.
