Technology and Human Rights Fellowship at The Carr Centre for Human Rights Policy

This year The Carr Centre for Human Rights Policy are specifically interested in assembling a group of scholars and practitioners who work on the theme of “Surveillance Capitalism or Democracy: Who Knows, Who Decides?”. They are seeking projects that connect to the research programs in Shoshana Zuboff’s 2019 book, The Age Surveillance Capitalism, and Mathias Risse’s 2023 book, Political Theory of the Digital Age. They take a special interest in projects related to the “unified field theory” outlined by Zuboff in her 2022 Organization Theory paper, “Surveillance Capitalism or Democracy? The Death Match of Institutional Orders and the Politics of Knowledge in our Information Civilization.”

The fellowship program will be jointly directed by Mathias Risse and Shoshana Zuboff. We welcome applicants from a broad range of approaches and disciplines to affiliate with the Center and conduct research for one academic year. This fellowship year will also host a range of activities around the theme of “Surveillance Capitalism or Democracy,” including various events marking the fifth anniversary of the publication of Zuboff’s book.
