Transparent Lives: Surveillance in Canada (Athabasca University Press) by Colin J. Bennett

Many Canadians are aware that government agencies conduct mass surveillance using phone and online data. Fewer are aware of being under constant surveillance in their everyday lives. We cannot walk downtown, attend a class, pay with a credit card, hop on an airplane, or make a phone call without data being captured and processed. Where does it go? Who makes use of it? Is loss of control of our personal data the price paid for social media and electronic communications, or do we tolerate a system that makes us visible ― and thus vulnerable ― to others as never before? Experts from a seven-year multi-disciplinary research project explain how surveillance is expanding ― mostly unchecked ― into every facet of our lives, and what to do about it.

Speaking Power to Truth: Digital Discourse and the Public Intellectual (Athabasca University Press)

Speaking Power to Truth: Digital Discourse and the Public Intellectual (Athabasca University Press) by Michael Keren
English | Dec. 17, 2015 | ISBN: 1771990333 | 216 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Online discourse has created a new media environment for contributions to public life, one that challenges the social significance of the role of public intellectuals―intellectuals who, whether by choice or by circumstance, offer commentary on issues of the day. The value of such commentary is rooted in the assumption that, by virtue of their training and experience, intellectuals possess knowledge―that they understand what constitutes knowledge with respect to a particular topic, are able to distinguish it from mere opinion, and are in a position to define its relevance in different contexts.
