Why is everyday surveillance a religious issue?
Mon, October 17, 2016, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM BST
This public lecture is aimed at a general audience of people from any religious faith tradition, or none.
David Lyon has been, for decades, one of the world’s leading academics researching, writing and speaking at public events about the implications of everyday surveillance. In this talk Prof. Lyon will seek to make important connections between the concerns of religious faith and how surveillance is practiced by states and corporations. He will suggest how the resources of faith traditions, particularly how they value the human person and human flourishing, might offer concrete responses to the often controversial watching directed at citizens by sophisticated digital technologies.
A question and answer session will follow his 40 minute talk which begins at 7.30pm.
The event will be audio-recorded for later distribution.
