Research Bitakora Moleskine April Field Notes > Future Everything 2014 (Manchester) > #LSECapitalism Prof Harvey (London) > Skoll World Forum (Oxford)

This post summarizes three sequential events that took place in April 2014. Firstly, Future Everything 2014 took place in Manchester on 1st April. Secondly, Prof David Harvey presented his new book on 2nd April at #LSECapitalism and finally, the Skoll World Forum at the Säid Business School at the University of Oxford.

#Unplugging > Beyond Hyper-Connected Societies

On the 20th June 2014, myself and Dr Cristobal Cobo will be conduct the workshop supported by TORCH The Oxford Research Center for Humanities at the University of Oxford.
This cross-­‐disciplinary research workshop focuses on the intersection between technology, cities, business and digital humanities knowledge fields. The main aim of this workshop is to gather together a diverse scholarly community to better understand the social and cultural implications of the hyper (almost 24/7) connected society. As a consequence, a research network will be set up to discuss and reach beyond the techno-­determinism criticism and explore some of the side-­effects of an increasingly hyper-­connected society.
