Workshop: Sport-Megaevents und Ãœberwachung

Call for paper proposals for a workshop on “The Surveillance Games” Simon Fraser University at Harbour Centre, Vancouver, BC. November 20-22, 2009

Mega-events such as the Olympic Games, the FIFA World Cup, and high profile political summits such as the G8 and World Trade Organization meetings have all been identified as primary targets for terrorist attack and have undergone extensive security and surveillance transformations as a result. Mega-events now serve as focal points for security and surveillance proliferation. They are microcosms of larger trends and processes, through which we can observe the complex ways security and surveillance practices are implicated in unique confluences of technology, institutional motivations, and public-private security arrangements.

Die Frist endet am 31. März.
