Surveillance and Human Flourishing: Shaping Data Justice for All
Hosted by: The MU Centre for Technology, Law, & Policy and the MU School of Law and Criminology
Facilitated by: Dr. Ciara Bracken-Roche
Participants: Professor David Lyon, Professor Mary Corcoran, and Professor Rob Kitchin
The global pandemic catalyzed a surveillance surge, both within public health and also in, for instance, education, workplaces, and transportation. Common features of surveillance, both desirable and otherwise, mushroomed, as corporations, sometimes working alongside governments, offered aid. The challenges for conventional policy were myriad and responses were frequently late, confused or ignored. A number of factors played roles, not least, one, that the language of “privacy” and even “data protection” is often perceived in narrowly and related primarily to individuals. Two, the “solutionist” use of data to address human problems is frequently fails to understand the character of the “human” problems. Three, datafied pandemic responses are informed and galvanized by surveillance capitalism, whose emergence predated the pandemic. One way to address this is to place these matters in a much broader frame, here proposed as “human flourishing.”What might this mean for understanding and practising surveillance?

Sociology of Gender- Masculinities
Facilitated by: Dr. Pauline Cullen (Dept of Sociology)
Masculinities are no longer treated as a collection of traits or a role that sex-differentiated individuals must assume but rather understood as emerging relationally and at multiple stages of social life, implicating political power structures, cultural norms, embodiment, the ways in which work, family and home are organised and the demarcation of social spaces, leisure activities, and practices along gendered lines. “Masculinities” must also so be understood in intersection with race, class, age and other lines of difference. In this lecture, Dr. Cullen maps how masculinities are implicated in broader structures and processes of gender inequality as well as how efforts to describe masculinities as toxic, regressive, restrictive, or progressive shape how we engage boys and men on the issue of gender equality. Our understanding of masculinities as complex and dynamic and as politicised in keyways is also important in the context of right wing masculinist constructions of leadership and the instrumentalization of ideas about gender by far right forces.
