Description

'How do we want to relate to each other in a digital media-saturated environment?' and 'What is it that we have allowed to expand with so few limits?' are questions which David Lyon considers in this lecture. Stating that surveillance is not inherently good or bad, but that in practice it is never neutral, Lyon unpacks some of the history, context, and meaning of surveillance and suggests some responses to the practice of massive and often non-consented surveillance.
