*please note: closer date for expressions of interest! November 16th.


(IN)VISIBILITIES: THE POLITICS, PRACTICE AND EXPERIENCE OF SURVEILLANCE IN EVERYDAY LIFE A TWO-DAY INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HOSTED BY THE CENTRE FOR CRIMINOLOGICAL RESEARCH, UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD, UK IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE SURVEILLANCE STUDIES NETWORK WWW.SURVEILLANCE-STUDIES.NET

Wednesday 2nd April - Thursday 3rd April 2008


Confirmed Keynote Speakers: Zygmunt Bauman, David Lyon and John McGrath 


While many of the world's nations are becoming surveillance societies, the nature of life with surveillance in those societies is far from homogeneous, and is not widely researched or theorised. This conference focuses on the lived realities of surveillance and is keen to encourage empirical studies which document its everyday experience. 

By its very nature surveillance makes populations visible, and differentiates between their members; surveillance itself features varied techniques, intensities and foci.  Whether as workers, consumers, children, patients, criminals, web surfers or travellers we are made visible in different ways, through different technologies and administrative regimes.  Visibility is not always total, unproductive or oppressive - visibility is necessarily partial.  
For some it is actively embraced: lives are lived in visibility. 

Nevertheless, widespread ambivalence towards surveillance has been noted in academic, policy and media circles. As surveillance confers benefits and incurs costs on individuals, personal information economies of surveillance emerge. 
In building personal strategies which involve surveillance practices, invisibilities are negotiated to mediate, limit and exploit exposure to surveillance.  How individuals, groups, organizations and societies negotiate, experience, resist, comply with, and enjoy surveillance are critical empirical questions, which appeal to surveillance scholars from a wide range of social science disciplines. 

Key themes to include: 
*	Experiencing Surveillance and Visibility
*	Participatory and Voluntary Surveillance
*	Theorising (in)visibility
*	Histories of Surveillance and Visibility
*	Surveillance of the Other - Visibility and Difference
*	Representations of Surveillance in Film/Art/Literature/Media
*	State Surveillance and Identification
*	Surveillance, visibility and the welfare state
*	Surveillance and consumer visibility
*	The transparent body
*	Electronic visibilities
*	(In)visibility and labour
*	Negotiating (in)visibility
*	Researching (in)visibility
*	Spatial visibilities
*	Surveillance futures
