The Changing Face of Value

23/10/13, 18:00 - 19:30

The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH

In this period of, arguably, unprecedented economic, technological and social change, 'The Changing Face of Value' set out to explore and critique how our sense of value and values may be shifting or indeed completely changing. The discussion probed and challenged our understandings of what is valued by whom and why in the 21st century.


Bringing together a diverse range of experts from within and outside the Academy, this timely debate presented a compelling range of perspectives on the digital world: is it shaping our social and cultural values, and if so, how?
