Organized by Beate Roessler and Hao Wang
In this reading group, we want to discuss texts both from the field of critical surveillance studies and privacy studies. Researchers in both areas have been working mostly separate from one another. Privacy literature, certainly if it is oriented towards legal regulations, has not, to our mind, profited and learned sufficiently from critical surveillance studies - and the other way round. We are interested in both approaches and open to all researchers in the field; we suggest to meet once a month and have started a dropbox with relevant literature. We will suggest a text for the first meeting and then decide on the program for the rest of the year. For more information and enrolment, please send an email to Hao Wang: firstname.lastname@example.org.
