Decolonising the digital city

Run time: 13.00 – 14.00

Our lives and experiences are increasingly mediated by our access to digital technologies and exchanges across digital platforms, especially in urban settings.

The legacy of colonialism is still deep-seated in the social and physical infrastructure of our cities, urban spaces and digital landscapes. It continues to shape our experiences across gender, generation and social class.

Using decolonial theory, Ayona Datta from University College London is beginning to understand how we address these inequalities. Together we’ll explore what it means to unpick and dismantle the networks of power and privilege in cities in a digital age from the bottom up.
