scheduled for Monday, February 14, 2022 at 5:00 pm (PKT).
This discussion will explore ways in which privacy is experienced along gendered lines, undercut and reinforced by patriarchy in complex and at times violent ways. Taking a feminist perspective on privacy, it will explore how the right to privacy has been critiqued by feminists, particularly the ‘privacy of the home’, but also how it has been employed to make gains in areas of bodily autonomy and sexualities - leading to the critical feminist question of whether privacy truly has emancipatory potential? The talk will also seek to contextualise this discussion in Pakistan, through the lens of emerging tech such as artificial intelligence, and the intersectional impact it can have.
Hosted in collaboration with the Saida Waheed Gender Initiative (SWGI) at LUMS, the session will be moderated by Dr. Maryam Mustafa.
