The Historical Society of Seabrook will proudly sponsor the NH Humanities Council program The Creep of Surveillance: From “Big Brother” to Mom and Dad on Thursday, April 16, 2015, at 6:30 pm at the Seabrook Library, 25 Liberty Lane, Seabrook, NH. The program is presented by David Mackey, Professor of Criminal Justice at Plymouth State University.
Technology has been used to monitor offenders, consumers, workers, students, and even children. This same technology has enabled law enforcement and other agents of social control to uncover a range of information and behavior that previously went undetected. This presentation explores the expanded use of technology for monitoring people’s compliance, performance, and even personal legitimacy. The legal, social, and ethical implications are also discussed.
The program is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the Seabrook Library at 474-2044.
