They're Watching Us/We're Watching Them: Civil Liberities Online

March 10, 2014 - 10:00am
University of Oregon

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
