Presentation

Silas L. Marker (1994) is MA student in philosophy and BA in philosophy and literature studies from Department of Humanities, University of Copenhagen.

His main interests are how political power is exercised through social media, Big Data and algorithms; how identity formation and opinion formation on Web 2.0 and 3.0 are connected to power exercising; and how (civil) society should act on and/or resist this exercise of power – what should we demand against the tech gigants?

Earlier he has worked with organizing, strategic communication, social media and administration in political organizations, unions, magazines and parliamentary elections.

Besides CIBS, he lectures in political philosophy at Niels Brock, Copenhagen Business College.
