SSC Reading Group

SSC Reading Group meetings occur monthly during the academic term at the Surveillance Studies Centre (SSC) at Queen's University. The general aim of these meetings is to discuss ideas relating to Surveillance Studies in a friendly, open-minded, constructive and informal way.

Two to three key readings will be announced at least one week before each meeting; these readings will be used to guide the discussion of each theme. All are welcome, and no prior knowledge of the topic of each session is required.

Future scheduled meetings:

No meetings planned at this time.

Future themes we intend to discuss include:

- the commonalities between security and surveillance (and security studies and surveillance studies); and
- surveillance and consumption.

If you have any suggestions for themes or readings for these meetings please contact David Murakami Wood.
