CANCELED: Pop-up Salon: Privacy 101

Thursday April 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We invite students, faculty, and the general public to participate in The Graduate Center’s new Pop-Up Salons. Held in the front area of the Mina Rees Library’s first floor—at the corner of 34th Street and Fifth Avenue—this spring’s Pop-Up Salons focus on threats to privacy in our technological world and the role of the library as an open place for information in a democratic society.

The digital age has brought a world of knowledge to our fingertips. While information generates a democratic society, how can people seek information while retaining their privacy? Internet activist Alison Macrina, the founder and executive director of the Library Freedom Project, leads a discussion highlighting practical strategies and tools that everyone can use to keep their personal information private.

Free; No Registration Required
