Sonic Privacy with Jasmine McNealy, University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications
This presentation is based on a study that considers the collection of sonic – sound related – data and proposes a theory of sonic privacy for data collection. At its foundation, this theory of sonic privacy examines the right of individuals related to their sonic emissions and distinguishes between sounds heard by other individuals and those collected through technological machinations. The talk examines the prior literature and background providing the foundational thinking on privacy related to sound. Following this, it turns to the wealth of sound focused privacy cases and legislation, specifically in the areas of surreptitious recording.
