Book Launch for Life After Privacy, the new book by MICA faculty member Firmin DeBrabander; in conversation with Dan Rodricks, columnist from the Baltimore sun. Hosted by the Pratt Library and the Ivy bookstore. With Life after Privacy: Reclaiming Democracy in a Surveillance Society, Professor of Philosophy at Maryland Institute College of Art Firmin DeBrabander explores the role that privacy does and does not play in today’s world. Even though people do know that their every move is watched and recorded online, why do they still share everything that happens to them on social media and are so careless about virtually sending along their own personal data? We no longer have privacy, but do we really need it or want it?
