Political Science

The Politics of Privacy in the Digital Age

Political Science 3462 - Spring 2020

This course explores the changing nature of privacy in contemporary society. UN charters and many national constitutions guarantee citizens a right to privacy, but what does this mean in an age of information-gathering and the increasing ability to track individuals' personal and public behavior? We will draw on theoretical and empirical studies in the law, political science, sociology, and communication studies to specify the important questions and debates faced by governments and citizens.
