Tea & Ethics: Is Your Face in My Space? Bookmark and Share

Jan 28

4:30 p.m. @ Edwards Recital Hall

Coastal Carolina University professors Deborah Walker and Gary Carson will host a discussion titled "Is Your Face in My Space?: The Ethics of Digitization" on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 4:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The event is free and open to the public.

This hour-long talk, part of the University's Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values' Tea & Ethics series, will focus on the tensions between private life and public life, in the age of electronic social networking. Walker and Carson will addresses the questions: What are the ethics of electronic communication? Do privacy disclosures help or hinder morality? How do individuals and organizations balance individual privacy and organizational responsibility? How do modern, context-specific issues such as "cyber-bullying" and/or "lurking" complicate such ethical considerations?
