Surveillance and Cities Panel

featuring Simone Browne, Lilly Irani,

Tawana Petty and Shakeer Rahman

Thursday, April 13, 2023, 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Margaret Jacks Hall, Building 460, Room 426 (Terrace Room)

In recent years, the adoption of surveillance technologies in the United States has been the subject of significant debate. Cities, including local police departments, have been increasingly using such technologies to solve crimes, protect security, and improve city operations. However, surveillance technologies have serious implications for privacy, equality, and freedom of expression and assembly, especially for marginalized communities. Through a panel discussion followed by a Q&A, we aim to explore the topic of surveillance in cities. RSVP for the event here.
