Mina Rees Conversation Series | Sarah Lamdan
July 2, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Sarah Lamdan (CUNY School of Law) will be in conversation with Emily Drabinski (Interim Chief Librarian), about Lamdan’s work with privacy as it relates to the “invisible, sprawling data surveillance industry” integral to policing. They will discuss the role of big data in surveillance, tracking, and deportation, and strategies to address these issues.
The Mina Rees Conversation Series is a lively showcase of ideas, research and active scholarship, from across the CUNY system and beyond. The series is titled in recognition of Mina Spiegel Rees – a renowned mathematician who served both as CUNY’s first Dean of Graduate Studies (1961–67) and was named as the Graduate Center’s first President in 1971.
