Attendees can earn continuing legal education (CLE) credits in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. For more information, please contact Katie Eyer.   Faculty and staff will need to log in to see more information on the presentation.

Sponsored by the Rutgers Institute for Information Policy and Law, this talk explores several cases in which governments have tried to control domestic information flows for political advantage.   China, Egypt, Denmark and the United States each implement control—through law, technology, subsidy and force—over domestic Internet space.  Using different methods and understandings of “control,” each seeks to maintain sovereignty over information flows.  Publics within these states increasingly view multifaceted efforts at information control as legitimate.  This talk will focus on the meaning of, and movement towards, information sovereignty. 

Shawn Powers (PhD, University of Southern California) is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at Georgia State University. His research specializes in international political communication with particular attention to the geopolitics of information and technology policy. Dr. Powers is a faculty affiliate of GSU’s Transcultural Violence and Conflict initiative and co-leads its British Council and U.S. Institute of Peace funded project on Civic Approaches to Religious Conflict. He is also an associate director at the Center for International Media Education and serves on the Board of Advisors for the U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy.

This event will take place in the fourth floor faculty lounge; pizza will be served.
