  • In Lulz We Trust

    by Gabriella Coleman

    Agents of activism and naughty mischief, Anonymous has been a constant fixture in the news due to their blizzard of interventions from taking down half a dozen websites in a single day to protest web censorship to assisting the historic revolutions in the Middle East and Africa. Drawing on three years of serious ethnographic research (re: chatting online, a lot), this talk will visit few of their major operations in order to address the political significance of their tactics and most especially, the lulz.

    At 10:10am to 10:50am, Friday 17th February

    In Main auditorium, Wellington Town Hall
