Expert on digital age surveillance and privacy issues to speak at OU
Those interested in how surveillance and monitoring in a modern, digital economy can produce detailed information about consumers – as well as how that information can become a highly valued commodity – are invited to attend an intriguing presentation hosted by SurPriSe, an Oakland University faculty learning community dedicated to the study of surveillance, privacy and security.
At 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 17, Mark Andrejevic of the University of Queenland's Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies and the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Iowa will present "Security and Participatory Surveillance in Post-9/11 Era."
Based on his research work involving television and new media from the perspective of critical theory and cultural studies, Andrejevic is the author of "Reality TV: The Work of Being Watched" and "iSpy: Surveillance and Power in the Interactive Era." He also has written numerous scholarly articles and book chapters, and is currently researching attitudes toward the disclosure of personal information online.
Andrejevic's presentation, free and open to the public, will take place in Banquet Room B of Oakland Center, which is located in the heart of the Oakland University campus. Interactive and printable maps are available at oakland.edu/map.
