Recent revelations of government surveillance and corporate data collection are only the latest episodes in an ongoing struggle over the content and meaning of our 'digital and informational civil liberties.' Surveillance and dataveillance have long been with us, but recent technological advancements and legal decisions have, without a doubt, raised the stakes. Come out to hear presentations from activists and investigators at leading national, state, and local organizations working on behalf of civil liberties, and then share your own experiences and questions afterward in an open discussion.
A roundtable discussion moderated by Wayne Morse Resident Scholar Colin Koopman (UO Philosophy), featuring:
Nate Cardozo, Esq. – staff attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation
Karen Estlund – head of Digital Scholarship Center, UO Libraries
Jennifer Frenzer – Knowlton, Esq. – Occupy Eugene
Dave Fidanque – executive director, ACLU of Oregon
April Glaser – staff activist, Electronic Frontier Foundation
