This event is part of the 2020 Cleveland Humanities Festival: TRUTH.
Building on empirical research, this lecture by Andra Siibak, Professor in Media Studies and Programme Director of the Institute of Social Studies at the University of Tartu, will illustrate how the data religion cultivated by the tech industry, popular press, marketing discourses and general societal expectations of a “responsible parent” have normalized the constant techno-gaze of parents, feeding into the “data-veillance” of children.
This event is co-sponsored by the Schubert Center for Child Studies and the Department of English.
