HIIG goes re:publica

08 May 2017

Founded ten years ago, re:publica has grown into one of the most exciting conferences on digital culture. HIIG researchers already attended the conference in the last few years, and we won’t be missing out on this year’s edition titled Love out Loud either. Our researchers will be offering quite a lot: From Fashion Tech, censorship in Turkey to civil disobedience online. You can meet us on all three consecutive days at the following sessions:

Monday, 8 May

Tuesday, 9 May

Tuesday is all about the #DigitalCharta. Meet our director Jeanette Hofmann, co-initiator of the Charter of Digital Rights for the European Union, discuss its articles as well as its critical points and work on its draft 2.0!

Wednesday, 10 May

As usual, we’re covering this event on Twitter. Under the official hashtag #rp17, you can follow the conversation and stay updated about all highlights at re:publica. Send us a direct message to @hiig_berlin and/or discuss today’s and tomorrow’s digital culture with us.
