Breakout session attendance is reserved for W&J students, faculty and staff only. Session links can be found on MyW&J.

This session examines sousveillance, or a participant’s recording of an activity, as a civic engagement strategy in modern U.S. society. By looking at this area of surveillance and technology, we can see what society chooses to remember and forget. This helps us better understand what our democracy fears, believes, and values but also prompts vital discussions of trust, consent, and agency which go to the heart of democratic citizenship.

Presented by Mary Ryan, W&J Assistant Professor of Political Science and Public Policy Program Director
