Data Deluge: Part Three

by CLIC @ JDHL on 2021-10-29T15:33:00-05:00 | 0 Comments

Join us Thursday, November 4, 2021 for the third speaker in our Data Deluge: Privacy in a Connected World speaker series, featuring Dr. Alexis Elder. Elder will present Data After Death: Remembrance and Resurrection:

How should we engage with people’s data after death? Information ethicists have emphasized the social nature of data, which makes it difficult to assign ownership. Privacy theorists have urged us to move beyond a simplistic model of information flow, emphasizing the importance of context and relationality. This presentation will draw on Daoist philosophical accounts of interconnectedness to help people move beyond individualist accounts of data stewardship for the dead and reflect on the roles data can play in remembrance.
