In the fourth session we will discuss: Privacy after pandemic: Emerging directions in privacy research

This is an agenda exploring and an agenda setting session to consider questions that may face privacy researchers post-pandemic. The field of digital privacy is driven by technological and policy changes with a lot of empirical privacy research focused on either historical or current socio-technical developments. The COVID-19 pandemic offers a potential pivotal moment in our collective relationship with technology, particularly when it comes to privacy, which emphasizes the need to think about the emerging future-oriented privacy research agenda. Asking to engage with this challenge we want to ask:

  1. What are some potential long term repercussions of the pandemic for practices, attitudes, and perceptions of digital privacy?

  2. What research questions are rising from the rapid shift towards adoption and use of mediated communication?

  3. How may policy and technological solutions, developed during the pandemic affect digital privacy practice and research in the post-Corona days. 

  4. Which emerging research questions about digital privacy may benefit from a comparative perspective?
