Discussing the unaccountable state of surveillance Image of CCTV camera footageat Sheffield’s Off the Shelf festival this October

What happens to all the information that is collected about you? What is the law? Can you control how this information is used?

Professor Clive Norris and Dr Xavier L’Hoiry, both from the Department of Sociological Studies, will consider these questions when they present their research into surveillance and access rights to our data at next month’s annual Off the Shelf Festival of Words in Sheffield.

The festival will see an array of international, national and local talent who represent diverse, exciting and thought provoking interpretations of the written and spoken word head to Sheffield for a three week-long series of events throughout the city.

Clive and Xavier, who together recently published the book The Unaccountable State of Surveillance, will speak about their findings at DINA (32A-34 Cambridge St, Sheffield S1 4HP) on Wednesday 18 October 2017 at 5.45pm. The event is free and open to all, and there is no need to book.
