Surveillance technology and neoliberal technoscience
Assistant Professor, Queen's University

Based on an ethnographic study of the development of an automated CCTV system, I will talk about the sometimes quite creative ways in which scientists may push back, and how this is tied to broader shifts in academic knowledge production.
