Lecture: Can we have some privacy?
The last decade has seen an explosion in social media, intrusive technologies and media competition all of which are putting pressure on privacy like never before.
In this talk, Victoria University’s Associate Professor Nicole Moreham will discuss how our society and lawmakers decide what is private and how to protect those things that are. Is there a fundamental benchmark for privacy or is it all inherently subjective? Should we be able to control whether images of us end up on the Internet or in the newspaper, and if so, when? What should we do if we disagree about these ideas?
Drawing on her recent research on legal and theoretical conceptions of privacy, Dr Moreham will answer these questions in a conversation with Provost Professor Wendy Larner, reflecting as well on her own career and how she became interested in this area of the law.
