Date: August 7, 2013
Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm
Location: MacAlister 2019

  • How have current computing and communication technologies impacted government surveillance?
  • To what extent should a government be limited in its surveillance over its citizens?
  • Should we be more fearful of our internet and communication providers than we are of our government when it comes to surveillance?

Join faculty moderator Dr. Rob D’Ovidio and our student panelists to discuss these questions and more in a Cross Country Conversation about Privacy in Society.

Lunch will be served.
