All human communities surveil. In fact, surveillance is a necessary condition of every society, past, present and future. Surveillance does not need to be digital, electronic or technological in order to have real power.
In this talk, Sylvia Tomasch maintains three assertions: first, surveillance works historically; second, as theory and practice, surveillance has its own history; and third, the discipline of surveillance studies must therefore historicize.
Sylvia Tomasch is a professor in the department of English at Hunter College (CUNY).
This event is sponsored by the Arizona State University department of English and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and free and open to th public.
