Bert-Jaap Koops, law and technology scholar, will discuss his project on privacy in the 21st century. 

About the Seminar

Koops: "In this talk, I present a definition of privacy in terms of space and identity, and I discuss the various spaces that are relevant for identity construction. Privacy has been defined and conceptualised in many ways, resulting in the meme that privacy is a fuzzy, messy, or incoherent concept. What I hope to show is, first, that privacy is a more coherent notion than is often claimed, and, second, that conceptualising privacy in terms of space and identity sheds light on the challenges of digital privacy. Since this is work in progress, I will briefly present the main outline of my argument, and then zoom in on one aspect: an overview of relevant privacy-related spaces (including mind, body, home, car, conversation space, publicly accessible places, and public places). The discussion will then revolve around the question: where can you be yourself?"
