THURSDAY, APRIL 17
Sarah Preston, "Too Little Liberty? Reining in the Surveillance State"
Isabella Cannon Room, 7:30 p.m.
The Ferris E. Reynolds Lecture in Philosophy
The government is sweeping up huge amounts of data about the American people and storing it indefinitely while new technology makes it easier and easier for the government to keep an eye on its citizens. What does the American government’s surveillance infrastructure look like? What is the tension between security and privacy and where should it break? This presentation will analyze the concept of privacy in the modern age, what new threats to privacy are on the horizon, and what laws should be considered to protect the privacy we have remaining.
Preston is the policy director of the ACLU of North Carolina.
