Surveillance in the 21st Century
In the past, surveillance tended to focus on specific types of people, such as prison inmates or crime suspects. Even in totalitarian societies, there were practical limits to surveillance. But today, technology has made surveillance cheap and more feasible for a wide variety of observers. As a result, surveillance has become ubiquitous, observing our ordinary behaviors. More and more information is being gathered, seemingly with our tacit cooperation.
Join Professor Michael Thaddeus of Columbia University, and our visiting Phi Beta Kappa Scholar, to discuss how our legal and economic systems and, more importantly, our habits and thoughts will have to adapt to these new realities.
Light refreshments will be served.
