Can we have some privacy
Drawing on her recent research on legal and theoretical conceptions of privacy, Dr Moreham will answer questions in a conversation with Provost Wendy Larner
Provost Lecture Series
The past decade has seen an explosion in social media, intrusive technologies and media competition, which have put pressure on privacy like never before. 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?
Victoria University’s Associate Professor Nicole Moreham will discuss how our society and lawmakers decide what is private and how to protect the things that are private. Drawing on her recent research on legal and theoretical conceptions of privacy, Dr Moreham will answer the questions above in a conversation with Provost Professor Wendy Larner, and reflect on her own career and how she became interested in this area of the law.
The Provost Lecture Series is hosted by Victoria University Provost Wendy Larner and brings together local and international speakers to discuss the world of academia – interesting research, personal journeys and the future of universities.
