Surveillance presents challenges to researchers, particularly those engaged with organizations, social movements and targeted communities. Yet community-engaged research is as important as ever. How should researchers and community partners (people, movements, organizations) navigate these challenges? What legal, practical, and theoretical tools are useful? This workshop is broken up into three complementary sessions. Attend them all or just one or two. The first session (4-4:50pm) will cover digital security and policy: what has happened, what may happen, and what the organizations on the front lines are doing to protect academics; during the second session (5-5:50pm) attendees will review real life surveillance cases by academics and social movements and the tactics they used to protect themselves, and finally during the third session (6-6:50pm) attendees will learn hands on tools for protecting themselves, their subjects, and their data. Bring your computer. Dinner will be provided.
