<nettime> Whistleblowing for Change: Book Launch and Conference - Nov 26-28

Dear Nettime list,

this year at Disruption Network Lab we worked on a book project in the
context of whistleblowing. The anthology has the title "Whistleblowing
for Change", including texts written by 30 participants of our
Disruption Network Lab conferences 2015-2020.

The date of publishing is November 27 and for that occasion we are
organising a conference with some of the authors. The conference starts
on November 26 with the German premiere of the film "United States vs.
Reality Winner", a 2021 American documentary film, directed and produced
by Sonia Kennebeck.

The book investigates whistleblowing as a developing political practice
that has the ability to provoke social change. The chapters features
contributions from Billie Winner-Davis, Daniel Hale, Brandon Bryant,
Barrett Brown, John Kiriakou, Laura Poitras, Simona Levi, Lisa Ling,
Lauri Love, Annie Machon, Cian Westmoreland, and others.

It is published by transcript Verlag. The PDF of the book is already
online and the hard copy and EPUB will be available next week:

I hope to see many of you at our event & please spread the news of the book:

Here you find the detailed programme:
and below the conference schedule.

All the best, and thank you,
