Postponed. New Date TBD. Seeing Like the Police / Nina Kushner
Other - Lecture/Discussion
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
4:00 PM-6:00 PM
With surveillance cameras, data mining, and the Patriot Act, agents of the state have both the ability and the authority to watch the public like never before. But this practice is not new. In her talk, Professor Nina Kushner (History) will discuss the evolution of covert domestic surveillance as it emerged in eighteenth-century Paris, examining how and why the state and the police began to spy and keep secret files on its own people.
