Syllabus Description:

This course will examine the intersection of race, surveillance, and the law.

In particular, surveillance of the Black Lives Matter movement and of Muslim and Arab communities has raised complicated issues surrounding race. Topics that will be covered in this course include: drone surveillance, stingray technology, DNA, car tracking, and cell phone tracking.
