Teresa Cerratto Pargman, Professor at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) at Stockholm University and Director for Outreach at Digital Futures, will engage in dialogue with Carl Öhman, assistant professor of political science at Uppsala University.

The conversation evolves around Carl Öhman’s book “The Afterlife of Data: What Happens to Your Information When You Die and Why You Should Care”. This short, thought-provoking book is about what happens to our online identities after death.

A maximum of 50 participants are welcome to join the seminar at the Digital Futures hub. First come, first served!
