Roundtable to consider surveillance in private spaces
Surveillance in our cars and other private spaces will be the subject of an upcoming roundtable discussion sponsored by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy. “What Do Machines Know About You?” will be held at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25 in the Miley Hall executive dining room.
Is privacy rapidly becoming a thing of the past? Is there anywhere left where we can truly be free from various forms of surveillance? Even our cars can spy on us, monitor our movements, listen in on our conversations and watch our actions.
Moderated by Dr. Sean O’Callaghan, assistant professor in the Department of Religious and Theological Studies, and Francis Quigley, research analyst at the Pell Center, the roundtable will ask participants to consider questions around their right to a private life. How much are we willing to give up for security and comfort and is it worth it?
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff. The Pell Center provides a free lunch. As space is limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to (401) 341-2927 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
