Conference: Privacy Outside Its Comfort Zone

Posted on February 9th, 2017 in ArchiveRespond to this post »

Deadline: 28 February 2017 Open to: scholars and PhD students who work on the concept of “privacy” in the context of Late Socialist Eastern and East-Central Europe Venue: December 8-10, 2017 at the University of Passau, Germany

This conference aims at elucidating the problems and the perspectives of privacy studies beyond... Read More »
