Anita Allen on How Privacy Got Its Race

Mon, 11/16/2020

Join Anita Allen's Seminar at Princeton Research, in collaboration with the Center for Information and Technology Policy, for a survey of "issues and concerns at the intersection of race relations and privacy — values and rights. Who gets to be shielded or secluded? Who gets watched; gets to observe? Who gets profiled, who ignored? Who gets to be invisible or is forced into invisibility? The focus will be the United States and Blacks but parallel structures of power and domination can be seen in China with respect to its minorities."
