Australian Surveillance Studies (AusSS)

A Research Group in the Faculty of Arts and Education

 

AusSS Member Profiles

Over the past three years Palmer and Warren have been researching the use of
surveillance technology such as ID Scanners and CCTV systems. In addition, meetings
with leading international scholars have taken place at several universities in Canada
and the UK. We now seek funding to develop this emergent research focus into a key
research group within Deakin University starting initially with this ERG funding
application. We are have already had some preliminary discussions with academics
from other Faculties and received enthusiastic responses pointing to the potential of this
ERG to develop into a larger and more significant strategic research focus across
Deakin University.
