Event Attributes

The line “if you’ve got nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about” is used all too often in defending surveillance overreach. While the argument applies to some situations, it represents a very narrow way of looking at privacy.

There are myriad of ways to respond to the digital privacy crisis that is currently plaguing our society. Come hear how responses are becoming more and more creative, not only by artists but also by professionals in the privacy arena who recognize the need for more surveillance of surveillance!

Authors Julia Angwin, Peter Earnest and Michael German will be signing books that will be available to buy at the event.

Presented in partnership with the Design | Cultures and Creativity Student Council and ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Student Board
