Privacy lecture coming up

By Steven | November 17, 2017

Dr Nicole Moreham is giving a public lecture on privacy on November 28. She is the shit. Details below.

Can we have some privacy?

The last decade has seen an explosion in social media, intrusive technologies and media competition all of which are putting pressure on privacy like never before. In this talk, Victoria University’s Associate Professor Nicole Moreham will discuss how our society and lawmakers decide what is private and how to protect those things that are. Is there a fundamental benchmark for privacy or is it all inherently subjective? Should we be able to control whether images of us end up on the Internet or in the newspaper, and if so, when? What should we do if we disagree about these ideas?
Drawing on her recent research on legal and theoretical conceptions of privacy, Dr Moreham will answer these questions in a conversation with Provost Professor Wendy Larner, reflecting as well on her own career and how she became interested in this area of the law.

When: 6pm, Tuesday 28 November
Where: Lecture Theatre 2 (RHLT2), Rutherford House, Pipitea Campus, Bunny Street
RSVP: phone 04-463 7458 by Friday 24 November.
