oin us for an evening lecture with Dr. David Lyon of Queen’s University, author of The Culture of Surveillance.

The digital world of internet and social media use has become the context in which we all live our lives, both in Canada and internationally. Its surveillance dimensions are subtle, unavoidable and consequential. The everyday news is full of it––think Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, Google’s Sidewalk Labs in Toronto, Huawei’s 5G ambitions! We not only experience this from day-to-day through our phones, tablets and laptops but we also engage with it. How should Christian imaginaries and practices be shaped in the digital context where watching and being watched have become so culturally central? And how can we contribute to human flourishing in this environment?
