*Freedom and Unfreedom in the Digital Age: 3rd Digital Media Conference to  
Address NSA Scandal, Civil Liberties, and Mass Incarceration *

On October 25-27, 2013, the 3rd Digital Media Conference will take place at  
Lesley University's Doble Campus (http://goo.gl/maps/pqDQr [1]) on Mellen St.  
in Cambridge. 

The conference's theme is Freedom and Unfreedom in the Digital Age. Plenaries  
and workshops will address the grave threat posed to American democracy by  
the ongoing NSA scandal, and relate it to threats and opportunities posed to  
civil liberties by the swift growth of digital media and technology in the  
service of the national security state. 

Additional connections will be made between the struggle to expand civil  
liberties nationwide and the campaigns by communities of color and immigrants  
to resist constant surveillance and mass incarceration by increasingly  
militarized police, ICE, the DEA, state and federal prison systems, and the  
private prison and security industries. There will also be basic workshops on  
social media, digital storytelling and privacy software. 

Confirmed speakers include: Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, author and media personality  
(NYC), Kade Crockford of ACLU Massachusetts, Gregg Housh of Anonymous, Betty  
Yu of the Center for Media Justice (NYC), Rajesh Kasturirangan of MIT,  
Subrata Ghoshroy of MIT, Libby Reinish of the Free Software Foundation, Robin  
Jacks of Occupy Boston, Alfredo Lopez of May First/People Link (NYC), Chris  
Faraone of the Weekly Dig, and Deb Nicholson of MediaGoblin.

Tickets are $35 ($10 students and low-income).
