VR Technology in a Post-Truth World: November 4th Presentation

Hi everyone! This coming Wednesday I will be presenting on the legal implications of the interaction between accelerating ‘virtualization’ and ongoing political trends in digital spaces, both in the context of video games and beyond. To get the class thinking about the immense potential for manipulation of participants in/inhabitants of virtual worlds, I have linked a brief video that provides an overview of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Going into my presentation, I want you all to think about your political interactions online, whether explicit or implicit, and whether you think that increasingly living out our lives in virtual spaces will benefit or harm our democratic society.
