What Is Privacy For?

Join ACLU attorney (and Edward Snowden’s lawyer) Ben Wizner, philosopher Michael P. Lynch, the Nation‘s Sarah Leonard, the Guardian Project‘s Harlo Holmes, and artist Ingrid Burrington for a discussion of such questions in connection with The Point’s Issue 9 symposium, What is Privacy for?

A panel hosted by The Point

Nearly every day we’re told that our privacy is under attack. Are we entering a new and treacherous phase in our relationship with privacy, or should we welcome, as some have recommended, a new “era of transparency?” Join ACLU attorney (and Edward Snowden’s lawyer) Ben Wizner, philosopher Michael P. Lynch, the Nation’s Sarah Leonard, the Guardian Project’s Harlo Holmes, and artist Ingrid Burrington for a discussion of such questions in connection with The Point’s Issue 9 symposium, What is Privacy for? Moderated by Jonny Thakkar of The Point. Discussion and drinks to follow the panel.

Wednesday, February 4, 7:30 pm
 n+1 headquarters, 68 Jay Street #405, Brooklyn, NY 11201
