Webinar: Data Surveillance

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.

Attending and Connecting
Webinar participants in Tallahassee are welcome to join us in person in the R&D Commons, basement level of Strozier Library, or to connect remotely via LiveStorm. Through the interactive features of our LiveStorm platform, all participants will have the opportunity to submit questions and participate in group chat.

Connection Requirements
Remote participants should ensure or secure the following:

  • Web browser (Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari version 10 or greater)
  • Adobe Flash Player version 10.1 or greater
  • Internal or external speaker
  • (recommended: headsets or earbuds for optimum sound)

Connection Troubleshooting
If your email host runs Proofpoint, you may experience some difficulty with the email-based link/button that Livestorm sends you to access the webinar. Should this happen, you can still access the webinar by copying/pasting the webinar url into your web browser, rather than clicking the link/button.

This webinar is made possible through the generous support of FSU’s Office of Research.

We hope you can join us,
