Author-Meets-Critics: Firmin DeBrabander Life After Privacy: Reclaiming Democracy in a Surveillance Society


During Fall 2020 University of Baltimore's Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics inaugurated an Author-Meets-Critics series, designed to inspire ethics-related dialogue through debate and cross-disciplinary conversation. Our second Author-Meets-Critic session will highlight MICA’s Firmin Debrabander, who will present his ideas about ethics, privacy, technology, and democracy, from his recent book Life After Privacy: Reclaiming Democracy in a Surveillance Society (Cambridge UP).  

 The critics will be Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics Director Professor Steven Scalet and Associate Dean and Philosophy Professor Christopher Griffin (Northern Arizona University). The format will include an author presentation, two critiques, an author response, and Q&A from the audience. 

Please join us! For information about the book: Students from Phil 490 Theories of Justice will have read the book in class and will be joining this event as well.
