Symposium: Living in Public: (Re)Negotiating Privacy + Security + Surveillance

October 3, 2015 9:00 am

Co-hosted and presented by The Tech Museum of Innovation and the San Jose Museum of Art.    

Fifty years ago surveillance belonged to the world of espionage, privacy could be obtained with doors and curtains, and security was not a personal concept. In the years following 9/11, the meanings of these three words — and the connections between them — began to shift. Are we safer? Is privacy dead? What is cyber security? Join our panelists as they consider and reconsider the increasingly complicated and sticky relationships among democracy and security, civil rights and surveillance, privacy, liberty, and public safety.
