TUES. 02/10: "Surveillance, Drones, and New Media"

Please join us for the next meeting of the New Media Working Group! The meeting will be held on Tuesday, 02/10 at 1:30 pm in the BCNM Commons (340 Moffitt). [PLEASE NOTE: Based on our Doodle poll results, Tuesdays 1:30-3 pm will be our meeting time this semester--please feel free to join us, even if you can't make the whole time.] 

The topic is "Surveillance, Drones, and New Media," and we will be reading short excerpts of recent books on this topic by Wendy Kozol ("From the Sky, on the Ground," from Distant Wars Visible) and Shelley Feldman ("Surveillance and Securitization," from Accumulating Insecurity) [attached here].  In what ways has new media offered and created a space for the normalization of surveillance? How is surveillance working for and against us?

Join us for food, drink, and conversation! Looking forward to seeing you soon.

all best,
Renée + Nick
