Communication under Surveillance

The Review of Communication is now accepting submissions for a themed issue on communication about and within fields of surveillance. In keeping with the journal’s aims and scope, priority may be given to macro-interpretive studies. Projects can be historical, theoretical, philosophical, qualitative, quantitative, rhetorical, performance-based, or syncretic.

This themed issue will consider experiences with, responses to, adoption, adaption, transgression, and/or resistance to new surveillance technologies and logics. Contributors are encouraged to take up two key questions: How are data collection practices/data surveillance communicated to users? What is in/visible to users about data collection and use?

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • corporate surveillance projects, platform capitalism, and surveillance capitalism
  • corporate partnerships with police and governing bodies (e.g., city, state, and federal use of metadata)
  • phone and dashboard cameras
  • home security systems
  • facial recognition software
  • personal tracking devices and biomedical instruments
  • unintended byproducts of new surveillance devices
  • performance that incorporates surveillance devices such as Ring or Nest
