Who Am I When I'm Online?

A talk and discussion about personal identity and the internet.

In a talk and discussion about personal identity Andrew Edgar will be asking 'Who am I when I'm online?'. Online we seem to have many identities; different usernames and avatars for different purposes. Are we 'ourselves'
in all of those guises? Do they all add up to an 'identity'? When someone steals my identity online, what have they stolen? Dr Edgar is Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University and has published in subjects as diverse as medical ethics, classical music and sport and is the author of a recent book on Jurgen Habermas, and will be sharing one of his latest research interests with us.

Big Ideas is a series of events we hold in a pub in central London. Sessions generally start with a question. Someone who has some relevant expertise gives a very brief, informal talk. After that a discussion develops in a
free and unstructured manner. It's not a lecture, and it's not a debate; it's a pub argument, but unlike any you've had before.
