Online identities are riddled with paradoxes.

On one hand, certain features—such as anonymity—that are part of having a cyberspace presence can provide a sanctuary from oppression, marginalisation, and exclusion. But on the other hand, cyberspace itself can be a realm of draconian monitoring and surveillance.

Drawing on theories of cyber surveillance and liberation, facilitator Aleks Hammo and guest Julie Youssef will explore the fusion of the ‘online self’ and the ‘real-world self’, considering the obstacles of developing an identity online, and the applicability of these theories to the real world.

This event is presented as part of our 16-25 expressions of interest program.
