Put on by University-Community Forum at ECM at KU. Panel presentation by Bill Staples, Professor and Chair at the Department of Sociology at KU. Americans seem to have an inconsistent relationship with the idea of privacy. On the one hand, the United States is awash in informational and other privacy laws designed to protect us. On the otherhand, we willingly and frequently give up personal information even when, as one scholar put it, doing so is “avoidable, risky, and undignified.” This talk will focus on this "privacy paradox" and how we might find a way out of it.
