12:00PM to 1:30PM

ISP Conference Room, Baker Hall, 40 Ashmun, A436

This project focuses on the harm reduction and safe abortion practices of feminist movements, such as abortion hotlines, and their direct action and guerilla tactics including postering, street art, and public spectacle. Within these movements, access to information as a harm reduction measure is practiced as part of a larger struggle to challenge the state and its authority. Harm reduction seeks to radically disrupt and decenter public power, and inspired by a collective freedom, to construct new and alternative ways of caring and living.

Transatlantic Perspectives of Privacy and Cybersecurity: a Proposal

1:00PM to 2:00PM

Room 128

The idea that the US and EU have different perceptions about privacy values is widespread. When describing the U.S. view, much scholarship starts from Warren and Brandeis’ Article “The Right to Privacy” which presents a general and undefined "right to be let alone" connected to a principle of excluding private spheres from public view. This view is very different from common European perceptions of privacy, which are based on concepts of generally applicable fundamental rights.
