Sarah Lamdan – Academic Surveillance: Big Data Policing in Libraries & Classrooms
October 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm CDTFree
As more of our traditionally in-person academic activities move online, our academic world is being run by tech companies. In libraries, our publishers and library service providers are pivoting to being data analytics companies, repackaging and selling people’s personal data to grant funders, landlords, and even law enforcement. Sarah Lamdan spoke about what it means for students and researchers when our research platforms and other academic services belong to data brokers. Lamdan is a Professor of Law at CUNY School of Law in Long Island City, New York and researches information law issues across the spectrum from open government to personal privacy.
