Is anything private any more?

When: Saturday November 2, 10am—11:30am
Where: Auditorium 2, Barbican, London EC2Y 8BN

What right, if any, do those in positions of power have to privacy? Do insights into people’s private lives help us to judge their character? Can intrusions into people’s privacy be justified in the name of the ‘public good’? Do threats to privacy increase the likelihood of people self-censoring? When social media and reality TV constantly encourage us to share our most intimate experiences and thoughts, have we forgotten what it means to be private?
