L.C. van der Velden: Surveillance as Public Matter: Revisiting sousveillance through Devices and Leaks.

PhD defense was in Agnietenkapel, Oudezijds Voorburgwal 229, Amsterdam, on 8 February.

Lonneke van der Velden investigates concepts of surveillance in the context of digital innovations. As surveillance consists of processes that are technical and often secret, she asks how surveillance is made public, and what kind of translation process this involves. She tackles this question by combining an empirical inquiry into how surveillance is traced and made visible and understandable with a conceptual search for new vocabularies to address surveillance practices and countermeasures.
