Public Lecture: Secrets of the Dark Net, Jamie Bartlett; The Contra-Internet, Zach Blas 
14 May, 6.30-8.30, Edmund J. Safra Lecture Theatre http://secretsofdarknet.eventbrite.co.uk
Jamie Bartlett, author of The Dark Net and member of the think tank, Demos, will be giving this keynote lecture on the secret side of the Internet. Bartlett will discuss some of the netâs most shocking and unexplored subcultures including trolling, neo-Nazis, child pornography, bitcoin and crypto-anarchy. He will examine how people behave under the conditions of real or perceived anonymity online, and what it means for society today. 
Artist Zach Blas will be a respondent to Jamie's lecture, discussing his latest project on what he calls the Contra-Internet. Recognizing the Internet as a premier arena of control today, contra-internet is both a refusal of, or exodus from, the internet and also an attempt to build aesthetico-political alternatives to its infrastructures.

Free to attend, but registration essential at: http://secretsofdarknet.eventbrite.co.uk
