About The Event
Surveillance has emerged as a generalized practice used by governments and industries to monitor, determine and predict human activity. It has become a theme in literature, film, arts, and constitutes nowadays a topic of scholarly investigation. This initiative will set up a French-Australian Symposium to create the conditions of a conversation between disciplines such as legal studies, social sciences, political science, law, computer science, and humanities, to explore with a multidisciplinary approach this contemporary issue.
The symposium will be followed by executive meetings to discuss long-term collaborations between the French and Australian teams, as well as masterclasses organised by French researchers during their stays. This gathering of French and Australian academics would be the opportunity to create closer research ties between the Centre for Law, Arts and the Humanities (ANU) and the Law and Humanities research centre (Panthéon-Assas).
