On May 3rd, 2020 from 6-7pm UW-Madison visiting scholar Ekaterina Libova joined Wisconsin K-12 teachers from her residence in Russia for a virtual discussion of digital identity and privacy rights.
Libova posits that one’s digital identity plays a significant role in establishing a global community, however without proper legal recognition certain digital identities may be excluded from political, economic, and social life. Libova’s research attempts to define the theoretical and practical challenges facing our digital identities and centers on establishing a standard of digital privacy and autonomy.
Libova is a vising scholar from Moscow, Russia. She holds an LL.M. in Intellectual Property and works as a legal counsel for an IT company. Libova’s research analyzes the effects of global digitalization on human presence.
This talk was originally part of the now postponed “Cyber-warfare and Accelerating Global Change Teacher Professional Development Workshop” and has been modified as an online lecture with Q&A to follow.
