Description:  Drawing on conversations and collaborations forged at ICA and in several local and regional research projects at different points on the globe, this post-conference aims to attend to privacy’s cultural aesthetic, by bringing together scholars conducting research that examines cultural, political, and/or geographic aspects of privacy. The ultimate goal is to start a conversation within our discipline about the ways in which systematic comparative cross-cultural analyses of privacy might be conceptualized, theorized, and operationalized in ways that are both novel and authentic. We anticipate that the first half of this full day post-conference will be devoted to research presentations submitted through a cfp (see The second half of the post-conference will focus on workshopping a framework for comparative analysis of privacy in broad informational contexts, including social media, health and fitness monitoring, digital literacy, and IoT devices. We will concentrate on articulating basic principles and a core analytical framework to be used by the group for ongoing comparative privacy projects, and building collaborative working groups to facilitate future research.
