Dragon Hall Debate: Surveillance

Monday 25th November 2019 - 19:00

Monday 25 November, 7 - 9pm (doors 6.30pm)
From Facebook, to China, to the FBI and MI5, the ways in which we’re watched - and the question of who is watching us - seem to be omnipresent in the news cycle. What problems - and what good - are arising from this world of constant surveillance? In this debate, Chief Executive of Index on Censorship Jodie Ginsberg will explore the censoring effects of surveillance on the press, UEA’s Dr Joe Purshouse will challenge the legality of facial recognition technology and UEA’s Dr Kaeten Mistry will explore what happens after the proverbial whistle is blown.
The Dragon Hall Debates - presented by UEA and the National Centre for Writing - tackle the biggest questions in science, culture and politics. Come along and hear from the panel, then join the conversation and have your say. All are welcome, and no prior knowledge is needed.
Entry is free, but tickets must be booked online via the National Centre for Writing website or by calling 01603 877177.
