Plan now to attend the Surveillance Summer Seminar, 10-17 June 2007.
The Surveillance Summer Seminar at Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario,
Canada) provides an intensive, multi-disciplinary learning experience that addresses key issues of surveillance studies, and in ways that would enhance the participantsâ€™ own research projects as well as providing a unique national and international networking opportunity.
David Lyon, Professor and Queenâ€™s Research Chair, Department of Sociology, and Director of The Surveillance Project, Queenâ€™s University, Canada
Kevin Haggerty, Associate Professor of Criminology, University of Alberta, Canada
Kirstie Ball, Senior Lecturer in Organisation Studies, The Open University, UK
Colin Bennett, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science, University of Victoria, Canada
The core of the seminar is group work, each facilitated by a member of seminar faculty. Groups will grapple with key issues in surveillance studies, including issues such as â€œThe researcher as surveillance agent,â€ â€œGaining entry into surveillance sites,â€ â€œMaking international comparisons,â€ â€œConnecting social science with policy and legal fieldsâ€ and so on. Participants are encouraged to comment, in their statement of interest, on what areas are of particular interest. The rest of the programme is devoted to theoretical, methodological and professional issues, and to open interaction with established scholars in the field. The idea is to â€œgo behindâ€ conference and book performances to discover how and why surveillance researchers do what they do. There will also be discussion of surveillance films, novels, art, music and drama and a look at counter-surveillance movements and activities. There will be no assessed tasks and no credit for enrolling in the seminar, although a letter confirming your completion of the seminar is available upon request.
APPLICATION PROCESS: The Summer Seminar is limited to 30 participants who are PhD candidates, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty. Applicants must submit a 250 word statement of interest and pay a $250 CAD deposit, which will be refunded should the application not be accepted. THE APPLICATION DEADLINE is 15 FEBRUARY 2007. We will review applications and respond to applicants by 1 MARCH 2007.
