Monday, February 18, 2013
4:30 pm


Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall

Danah boyd’s research examines the intersection of technology, society, and youth culture. Boyd’s talk is part of the Woodrow Wilson School’s “Technology and Public Policy” thematic lecture series.

“Drawing on ethnographic work with American youth, this talk will examine how young people understand privacy, the strategies they take to achieve privacy in networked publics, and how their practices challenge what it is that we think we see. I will use this material to raise questions about the future of networked privacy and the implications for public policy.”
