Global Digital Outlaws

Here's a talk by a visiting faculty member that LIS 201 students might find interesting!

Professor Carolyn Nordstrom of Notre Dame will be giving a University Lecture this week, Thursday, November 7 at 4 p.m. in 5208 Social Science.  

Author of the widely read Global Outlaws, she will be drawing in her UW lecture on her new book in progress, Global Digital Outlaws: 
"Vast "cyber-scapes" of digital activities are taking place globally that appear to be largely invisible to general populaces. Cyberwars, sophisticated transnational criminal enterprises, new forms of economic dominion and crisis, billion dollar businesses in behavioral-pattern theft and "stealing reality": all are actively redefining value, power, threat, and self/identity in emergent, post-geographical - and, if "stealing reality" is left unchecked - post-self/identity ways."
