From the Organizers:
In this session, S.T.O.P. will delve deeper into the rise of digital surveillance in U.S. prisons, often under the guise of information access. Jeanie Austin and Sarah Ball, who are both librarians inside of jails, will be in discussion with Kentrell Owens about the small number of prominent companies and startups that control the ICTs (information and communication technologies) that are available to people who are incarcerated and the ways in which ICTs are used for surveillance. They will also discuss how information surveillance may continue post-incarceration.
