Contingent on adequate student registration and subject to budgetary funding, the Department of Communication Studies invites applications for instructors to teach our course as posted on Laurier’s Faculty Positions page at: https://www.wlu.ca/about/careers-at-laurier/career-opportunities/faculty-and-librarian-positions.html
Please see the posting for detailed information.  The postings are located under 'Faculty of Arts':

·        CS412fA Self-Surveillance Society (Winter 2021)

·        Tuesdays 1130-1420

·        Everyday talk about surveillance largely relies upon a top-down model in which big brother in the system watches and records the actions of citizens with varying degrees of transparency and opaqueness. The Snowden revelations were largely framed in this way. At the same time, scholars such as Deborah Lupton have noted a growing range of self-surveilling or auditing practices in which people readily partake. These forms of self-surveillance are complex and contradictory and Lupton has identified at least 5 modes through which people come to participate in their own surveillance: private, communal, pushed, imposed and exploited. As an examination of the Gordian knot of surveillance, social media, and mobile technologies, this course will encourage students to (self) reflect upon and critique the emergence of a participatory surveillance society.
Thank you for your consideration.
