Description

The actions of both citizens and institutions are being scrutinised as never before. Personal information is a key commodity and resource, being routinely extracted from individuals as they partake in everyday activities. Surveillance has a complex form as both material force and discursive construction. Thus, the unit's objective is to equip students with the theoretical tools required to analytically comprehend the diverse ways in which surveillance is produced, represented and experienced.
