Talk at Colgate University on Big Data

Today I’m giving a talk at Colgate University, in New York. It was a bit of toss-up if the weather would allow me to get here (snow and flight cancellations), but thankfully I’m here safely.

My talk is entitled “Big Data Narratives: Surveillance and Privacy in the Age of the Algorithm.”

Thanks to my hosts Peter Scull, Adam Burnett and the geography department. The talk is made possible by the Dennis Fund endowed lecture series in the social sciences at Colgate.

PS: small historical note. Colgate was the place Peter Gould was evacuated to during WWII when he was a child.
