The National Archives (TNA) convenes an annual Digital Lecture focusing on digital and technological innovations and cutting-edge theories and methods of relevance to archives.

TNA is delighted to invite you to join them for their first annual Digital Lecture, which welcomes Professor Luciano Floridi, Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of Information, and Director of the Digital Ethics Lab, at the University of Oxford.

Exploring Semantic Capital: what it is and how to protect it, Professor Floridi will present new research on the capital of ideas, knowledge, insights, understanding, meaning, culture, languages, or in short, all of the mental productions that we both inherit and produce as humans. The lecture will discuss how such a semantic capital can be protected and fostered by the digital, but also put at risk and challenged, and what digital ethics may do to ensure its care, protection, and fostering.

Following the lecture, a reception and poster exhibition will take place, with lightning talks to showcase current digital research activities at The National Archives.
