Cambridge Papers Live: Surveillance Capitalism

By JubileeCentre 15 Jul 2021

We are in the midst of a digitally-enabled industrial revolution. As with all previous revolutions, this one is attended by by both benefits and perils.

This online live presentation of our latest Cambridge Paper, "Surveillance Capitalism: the hidden costs of the digital revolution" describes and examines the business model called "Surveillance Capitalism" and demonstrates its intrinsic dependence on deception, addiction and exploitation. 

The authors of the report - Jonathan Ebsworth, Samuel Johns and Mike Dodson - also suggest practical responses that individuals and communities can take to face these challenges with hope and assurance.

Modern Spirituality: learning from the poets

This Cambridge Paper offers a brief account of current alternative spiritual practices before asking what it is like to negotiate the tension between the assumptions of secularity and the impulses towards extra-ordinary forms of experience. Some of the richest accounts of modern spirituality come from the 1930s, and this paper examines some of the period’s profoundest poetic explorations of belief.
