Surveillance Societies: What Price Security?
Conference hosted by Macaulay Honors College at the City University of New York
April 24-26, 2009 in New York City
Keynote Address by David Lyon, Director of the Surveillance Project, Queens University

Macaulay Honors College at the City University of New York invites participation in an international conference to be held at Macaulay on April 24-26, 2009. The organizers welcome papers and roundtable discussions that focus on the tensions between systems of security within and between societies and systems of surveillance over members of those societies. We seek broad theoretical inquiries as well as interdisciplinary cultural, legal, historical, literary, and social science approaches.
Possible panel topics: historical considerations, zones of surveillance, scopic economies, religious and juridical apparatuses, networked societies, reconsiderations of Orwell and Foucault, surveillance, security, and emotion, nationalism and security, militarization, literature and film
