With an upsurge in attention toward veillance and transparency practices since Edward Snowden’s 2013 interviews published by The Guardian, public conversations of data surveillance have lately centered on racist and cultural critique. Please join us for our final webinar in the continuing series on “People in Data II,” open to any members of the FSU, FAMU, and TCC communities, as well as greater Tallahassee, the state of Florida, and beyond. This discussion will focus on several aspects of surveillance, from sousveillance alternatives (Steve Mann, 2005) to technological supremacy.
