Surveillance and Humanities Virtual Conference Series

Surveillance is central to the functioning of 21st century capitalism and modern social welfare. It has often been displayed as necessarily intrusive and threatening. The present initiative builds on the suggestions that an articulate discussion about humanities could be fruitful in producing a more complex picture and that literary works in particular could flesh out operative concepts in studies of surveillance.

This webinar series seeks to address surveillance meaning, scope and representation, and to initiate a conversation between arts, humanities and the various fields which surveillance is used.
