FRIDAY 29TH JANUARY 2016
Surveillance, Snowden and See-Through Lives
Surveillance is much-discussed in the news media, especially after Edward Snowden's disclosures and following each new terrorist attack.
Snowden's disclosures suggest surveillance is carried out beyond ethics and law. Terrorist attacks prompt calls for intensified surveillance.
How do we assess surveillance today? What difference does Christian commitment make? And how do we act appropriately in our daily lives?
Come and explore one of the defining issues of today with one of its leading thinkers.
David Lyon is a Professor of Sciology and Law, and Director of the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen's University, Ontario, Canada.
A founder member of WYSOCS, David has spent over 30 years studying surveillance, privacy, information, ID and social sorting. He now lives and works in Canada.
